ESG Viewpoint: Net Zero: Best Practice and Engagement Approach

As signatories of the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative, we are adopting a Stewardship-led approach to delivering our net zero commitment

Climate change is a priority issue for Columbia Threadneedle, and we have a comprehensive approach to managing risk and identifying opportunities, as set out in our TCFD report. A key pillar of our strategy is our net zero commitment. As a signatory to the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative, working in partnership with our clients, we aspire to reach net zero emissions by 2050 or sooner across all assets under management. We acknowledge that reaching this aspiration depends on the mandates agreed with our clients and their regulatory environments, as well as those of their managers.

Following industry best practice guidelines such as the Net Zero Investment Framework, we are taking a stewardship-led approach to implementing this commitment, which builds upon our years of engagement experience. This places active engagement, and the supporting use of stewardship tools like voting, at the heart of our approach. Engaging companies to actively transition and decarbonise is key for real world decarbonisation and true emissions reductions. It enables us to retain as extensive an investment universe as possible and act as a responsible steward of our clients’ assets by actively mitigating the various regulatory, physical, reputational and transition risks investors and their holdings face.
