Our global commitment to responsible investment

Below, we highlight our commitment to responsible investment, and more details are available in our 2016 Investment Stewardship & Proxy Voting Annual Report.

We are signatories to the UNPRI, UK Stewardship Code and Japan Stewardship Code. In 2016, the FRC (Financial Reporting Council) began tiering signatories and Invesco Perpetual was assessed as Tier 1 for our robust process and adherence to stewardship code principles. You can find a copy of Invesco’s PRI Transparency Report at www.unpri.org.

Our support for responsible investment comprises the following five areas:

  • Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), evaluation, screening and integration
    ESG considerations are factors, among many, that may be considered as part of a robust fundamental research process.

  • Research, resources and training
    Our teams have access to a wide range of information, including the ESG-related practices of companies worldwide.

  • Engagement with our portfolio companies
    Our investment teams may question or challenge companies about ESG issues that could have an impact on future value.

  • Proxy voting
    We believe the voting of proxies should be managed with the same care as all other elements of the investment process.

  • Environmental sustainability
    Invesco recognizes its responsibility to help sustain a healthy, clean environment for future generations.
