Bondholder Stewardship Position Statement

Bondholder Stewardship Position Statement

To seize the opportunity of driving real-world emissions reductions through bondholder stewardship and to address the needs of investors, we have launched a Bondholder Stewardship Working Group.

The working group will provide guidance on best practices for climate-related disclosure, stewardship and engagement and new financing structures for corporate bonds. The scope and objectives of the working group are outlined in this Position Statement.

The working group – comprising 9 core member investors representing £2.66 trillion AUM and a mixture of asset owners and asset managers – aims to support investors to use their influence as bondholders to meet their clients’ and their own climate objectives by working with companies to address the risks and opportunities associated with climate change and facilitate the transition to net zero.
