A message from Schroders' Head of Sustainability Strategy Hannah Simons: 

Sustainability never stands still. The sustainable investment landscape continues to move at pace and we are committed to responding to these changes and the evolving expectations of our clients.

At the heart of a fast-moving global regulatory agenda, is the theme of
transparency. While we have always prioritised sharing our sustainability activities with clients, this quarter we have taken this a step further and pre-declared a number of our voting intentions.

Continuous evolution of our proprietary sustainability tools is also a focus of our team.

As new research and data becomes available, we look to evolve our tools. Read more about how we have evolved SustainEx, including expanding it from assessing the social externalities of companies to countries.

As the landscape evolves, there is a growing emphasis on sustainability beyond companies. Read more about how our fixed income investors are thinking about sustainability in the context of sovereigns.

Finally, we have recently released the results of this years Schroders’
Institutional Investor Study, with some interesting findings on approaches to sustainability. Read more here.
