Public Engagement Report Q2 2020

The Public Engagement Report highlights some of the stewardship activities undertaken by EOS at Federated Hermes on behalf of its clients over Q2 2020.

Our cover story this quarter looks at the impact of the global pandemic on companies, their employees, supply chains and society as a whole, and explores how we have adjusted our engagement to reflect the harsh new reality. We also ask what lessons businesses should learn to be better prepared for future crises.  

Also in this issue:

  • Human rights engagement in high-risk contexts
  • A voting season like no other – virtual shareholder meetings against the backdrop of Covid-19
  • A selection of short-form company case studies highlighting areas where we have completed objectives or can demonstrate significant progress
