Often we partner with other investors and NGOs to advance common objectives. We believe there is power in numbers and in more company shares when we bring voices and interests to the table with different perspectives yet common objectives.
We regularly collaborate with members of the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility, the Investor Network on Climate Risk/Ceres, US SIF, the Principles for Responsible Investing (PRI), and CDP.
As noted above, we have a long history of partnering with the UN and its related entities. Calvert serves on the Investment Committee and the North American Task Force of the United Nations Environmental Programme — Finance Initiative. As it relates to the PRI, Calvert was a founding signatory, has served on various committees over the years. Calvert currently serves on the Investor Reference Group on Corporate Reporting, and collaborates on engagements. Additionally, the Calvert Women’s Principles were adopted as the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles. We also strive to promote the Sustainable Development Goals through the companies we invest in, through our engagement efforts with corporations and governmental agencies, and through our own operations.
