UN Global Compact

To the extent that an engagement issue that overlaps with the Global Compact (i.e. related to human rights, labour, environment, and corruption) are deemed to be material to the company’s operations and/or reputation, the ESG Research team will raise them with company management to assess how well the company is managing that risk. However, we do not monitor or categorize companies based on their adherence to the Global Compact, as this is subjective given that the Global Compact is a set of broad principles.
