The world is facing critical sustainability and social challenges that will require drastic change to overcome. Head of Global Sustainable Equities Hamish Chamberlayne joins Sustainability Analyst Amarachi Seery and Portfolio Manager Aaron Scully in a discussion on how companies are working to address these issues and why we believe active engagement is key to gauging their long-term progress.

Key Takeaways

  • While drastic change will be needed to address the environmental, social and governance issues the world is currently facing, we are seeing many companies rise to the challenge.
  • The pandemic has underscored the importance of engaging with companies on topics related to race, gender and climate change, and we have seen improvements in reporting on these factors.
  • We believe that companies that are aligned with the development of a sustainable global economy will be far more likely to see growth and demand for their goods and services and will therefore be more likely to achieve steady compound growth over the long term.
