Federated Hermes as a responsible firm
We believe that, while our primary purpose is helping beneficiaries retire better by providing world-class active investment management and stewardship services, our role goes further.
We believe that we have a duty to deliver holistic returns – outcomes for our clients that go far beyond the financial and consider the impact our decisions have on society, the environment and the wider world. In doing so, we invest our clients’ capital to create wealth sustainably – aiming to deliver sustainable long-term growth, while at the same time helping to build a better society for all.
As an active investor, we believe we have an important role to play in engaging companies to encourage responsible business practices. As a result, we frequently engage companies on a range of issues from accelerating the transition to a net-zero carbon economy to good corporate governance and the protection of human rights in their workforces, supply chains and the communities in which they operate.
It follows then that we are keenly aware of the need to act as a responsible firm ourselves. In this report, we document our responsible business practices, spanning the Federated Hermes Pledge, our governance, our people, supply chains, communities, our environment footprint, tax and accounting and audit.
