For UPP, engagement is a key tool for investors to influence and promote fair, efficient, and transparent market practices. This includes addressing ESG issues such as climate change, reconciliation, and human rights.
That is why selecting engagement partners that can amplify our impact, such as SHARE – Shareholder Association for Research and Education – is an important component of our responsible investing approach [link to Responsible investing page]. This partnership will strengthen UPP’s ability to align the interests of the companies we invest in with long-term value creation for plan members and to promote a just, sustainable society and economy.
“When developing our approach to responsible investing at UPP, SHARE was an obvious partner for engagement. SHARE’s engagement is both ambitious and practical,” said Brian Minns, UPP’s Managing Director for Responsible Investing, “SHARE’s reputation as innovative and tenacious is well-earned. We look forward to working with SHARE to address the climate crisis, advance reconciliation with Indigenous people, and promote human rights and decent work at home and through the supply chain.”
