Invesco is committed to adopting and implementing responsible investment principles in a manner that is consistent with our fiduciary responsibilities to clients. A key part of this effort is our 2018 Investment Stewardship & Proxy Voting Annual Report and our 2018 Corporate Social Responsibility 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.
We believe the voting of proxies should be managed with the same care as all other elements of the investment process.
Invesco recognizes its responsibility to help sustain a healthy, clean environment for future generations.

Invesco is committed to adopting and implementing responsible investment principles in a manner that is consistent with our fiduciary responsibilities to clients. Invesco supports the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and recognizes the importance of considering environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues as part of a robust investment process.
In June 2013, Invesco became a signatory of the UNPRI (United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment). The PRI is the largest and leading global responsible investment network of investment managers and asset owners in the industry. Invesco joins several other peer organizations in our support of the PRI initiative and material ESG topics.
The PRI is based on six key principles that serve as a foundational framework for large diversified investment managers to establish a well-articulated and supportive approach to ESG issues.
