2022 Annual Engagement Review

Engagement Overview

The Limits of Graphing ESG

Although our engagement priorities pie chart looks “perfect”, take it with a grain of salt! Those perfectly straight lines and simple categories help to give a snapshot of where our priorities lie in a given year, but it does not really convey the complexity of each issue.  Many issues we address cross multiple categories, and we do our best to place it into the best fit.  For example, our work on plastics will typically falls into the climate/environment category, but plastics also have strong social implications given impacts on human health and coping with the externalities of plastics pollution. Pretty much every climate issue has crossover impacts…and the governance of a company is connected to each and every issue we work on.
