Welcome to the Autumn 2021 edition of Responsibility Matters – our magazine looking at RLAM activity and views across all aspects of responsible investing.
The landscape has undoubtedly undergone a transformation over the past couple of years. The Covid outbreak has accelerated a number of trends and societal shifts, and shone a light on company behaviour in a way we haven’t seen before. At the same time, the penny has started to drop for many of us about the real world impacts of climate change. Not only did large parts of North America and Europe spend their summer engulfed in smoke from forest fires, it also rained for the first time at Greenland’s highest peak.
The views expressed are those of the author at the date of publication unless otherwise indicated, which are subject to change, and is not investment advice.
