The team actively engages with portfolio companies and their boards to understand how boards oversee material risks that have the potential to affect long-term value for shareholders.... This includes key social risks such as modern slavery and human rights.

Our approach to human rights begins with analysis of third-party research based on the

United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). Our Investment Stewardship team uses proprietary

research as well as research providers such as ISS Ethix and Sustainalytics to identify human

rights risks within our investment portfolio.

Research includes information on companies operating in zones or regions that are at a high risk of human rights and modern slavery violations. From this starting point, we assess the severity of the impacts of a company’s operations on human rights.

A cross-functional working group of senior analysts from the Investment Stewardship team regularly reviews companies with potential violations.
