In the final quarter of 2022, we focused on concluding thematic engagements, considering the implications of the UK’s proposed new Sustainability Disclosures Requirement (SDR) regulation and setting priorities for 2023.
The RI Reels vlog continues to showcase responsible investment-related topics, and we received very positive - and unsolicited - feedback that it helps in understanding what being a responsible investor means. It is to Kirsty Ward and Violet Hayden’s credit as they have worked hard at developing this.
We completed four thematic engagements in 2022 covering our mega themes of climate change, human rights and natural capital, as well as joining collaborations on linked topics. Our annual responsible investment report will showcase these thematic engagements more extensively.
