Active Ownership Through Collaborative Engagement

on Top-Priority ESG Themes

In recent years, the onset of industry initiatives, local and global Stewardship Codes, regulatory frameworks and an increased awareness of sustainability and its impacts on corporate performance and risk mitigation have caused leading investors to view engagement as an effective way of protecting shareholder value and countering ESG risks.

Listen in to this discussion on ISS ESG’s new Thematic Engagement solution, which allows investor clients to create positive change by effectively and jointly communicating their expectations to corporate management in compliance with voluntary and statutory stewardship requirements. Following its launch on October 26, 2021, learn more about how investor clients can leverage ISS ESG’s expertise, research and data to measure their engagement progress over the engagement life cycle, to assess engagement success and to track the status of their engagements on a quarterly and annual basis.

Additionally, explore ISS ESG’s Thematic Engagement solution’s running themes that are open for participation as of January 2022 and learn more about how investors are aligning their interests in addressing specific issues with their engagement activities.
