Boasting 15 years of operation as evidence, Hermes EOS proves that asset stewardship is essential in sustainable-investment strategies.
What’s it all about?
Hermes EOS recently celebrated its 15th anniversary, cementing the mainstream credentials for the pioneering global asset stewardship group.
Hans-Christoph Hirt, CEO of Hermes EOS, recounts key moments of the stewardship unit’s story in the latest Hermes EOS Public Engagement Report, including its attendance at the ratification of the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change. The event “served notice that companies could not continue with ‘business as usual’ – this was unsustainable”.
What’s the impact on investors?
Along with other groups, Hermes EOS has helped shift the global investment conversation from pure financial matters to one where real-world impacts hold sway. Talk continues, but investors now want stewardship to deliver outcomes.
