Key takeaways:

  • The strategy exceeded the MSCI World benchmark in 2021 in all but one of its environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics.
  • Over 20% of holdings have either already achieved, intend to achieve, or are being engaged with to achieve net zero by 2030.
  • Looking ahead, the team will seek to increase engagement on climate, reporting, and diversity and inclusion.

We are delighted to share with you the Global Sustainable Equity Strategy’s annual sustainability report for 2021, our fourth version of this report in the strategy’s history. This is the most detailed version of the report that we have ever produced, and we are proud of the significant steps we have taken to enhance transparency for our stakeholders.

As sustainable investors, transparency is vital. Reporting allows us to communicate our sustainability performance, enhancing our accountability to stakeholders. In short, this report demonstrates that we are who we say we are and that we do what we say we do.

So, what can you find in the 2021 Annual Sustainability Report for the Global Sustainable Equity Strategy?

The first few pages of the report highlight the strategy’s investment approach, gives a good summary of the strategy’s thematic allocation, and provide some case studies based on a few companies we invest in.

As you delve deeper, you will find a comprehensive evaluation of the strategy’s performance against a number of ESG metrics and an update to our Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures reporting. We are pleased to report improvements in many of these metrics compared to the year prior.

We also include a detailed summary of voting and engagement with examples of key engagement topics addressed throughout the year.

We finish off by explaining how the strategy contributes to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These areas will go on to influence many of the engagement points with companies in the coming 12 months.

We would encourage you to read the full version of the Annual Sustainability Report, which can be found on the Janus Henderson website.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss any of these topics in more detail, please reach out to the Global Sustainable Equity Team.

We hope you find the report informative and look forward to hearing your feedback.

We are delighted to present the Global Sustainable Equity Team’s fourth annual sustainability report and to share our progress on the strategy’s sustainability agenda.
