Invesco was recently awarded the 2018 Industry Innovation Award for ESG (environmental, social and governance) in institutional asset management by Chief Investment Officer - CIO. The honor recognizes our firm’s global advocacy for sustainability, leadership in sustainability transparency reporting, and its robust approach to responsible investment.
Invesco’s advocacy includes international involvement in ESG working groups as well as our role as a signatory to the UN PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment), the UK Stewardship Code and Japan Stewardship Code. Invesco publishes annual reports highlighting our investment stewardship and corporate social responsibility.
As a fiduciary for our clients, our firm puts ESG principles at the center of our investment process. Invesco believes that by incorporating sound ESG practices into activities across our firm, we can positively impact the value we provide to clients as well as the value we deliver to shareholders. We take a team-by-team approach on implementing responsible investment principles depending on each team's exposure to certain client demand and market segments and its ability to incorporate ESG into its investment approach and process.
Finalists for the award included institutional asset managers from the United States, United Kingdom, and France. Invesco was a finalist for the inaugural Industry Innovation Award for ESG in 2017.
