ESG
Introducing our approach to investment stewardship

15 MIN REPORT

 


At Capital Group, we are stewards of the assets entrusted to us, and we extend that stewardship to the world around us


When deciding how to invest, we believe it's important to know how a company impacts its community, customers, suppliers and employees. That can require deep research and ongoing engagement.


Our approach to meeting with management and voting on proxy items is led by our investment professionals, so companies receive consistent messages about where we want to see progress. In 2020, we tracked 724 meetings about specific ESG concerns, and more than half of those focused on governance issues, such as board composition, executive pay, proxy votes and shareholder rights.


Beyond our direct engagement, we have joined with international associations to help address some of the world's most pressing challenges. For instance, Capital Group has joined the UN Global Compact initiative and supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals are the most widely used framework for companies and asset managers to quantify their impact on such important areas as gender equality, climate action, and responsible consumption and production.


This report on our investment stewardship demonstrates our commitment to transparency in our engagement and proxy voting activities. You'll find details about how we have made ESG a top priority and incorporated it into our long-term approach to investing.
