Taking action against climate change or inequalities is complex and is not solved easily through quick fixes. With active ownership, investors take responsibility and contribute with investments towards a sustainable future. Active ownership means that investors use their shareholder rights to influence issuers and improve environmental, social, and governance- performance (ESG). It can be practiced through investors interacting with portfolio companies by initiating engagements or voting at shareholder meetings.
Active ownership engages multiple actors both within investor firms and externally. This is why the approach is so efficient for making impactful actions, but it is also why it can be time-consuming and confusing. With Esgaia, we are changing this.
Esgaia helps investors to improve their work with active ownership. With the Esgaia platform investors can easily create engagements, log the progress, collaborate, and showcase their work.
With the EsgaiaPrimary domain platform, investors can create engagements and insert all information needed in a structural manner. Depending on the objective, users can create a thematic engagement, targeting multiple companies or a single engagement, targeting one company. Users can create collaboration by inviting other investors to their engagements.
When creating an engagement users can define a range of data points such as ESG-category, materiality, extent of impact, and the SDGs related to the engagement. Engagements should be created in such a way that it aligns with the investor portfolio and purpose. Read more about how to create successful engagements here.
