LGIM's ESG scores
In 2019, LGIM ran a targeted engagement campaign focused on social, governance and transparency issues at large companies with poor ESG scores.
As more widespread access to ESG data gradually enables markets to better price in that information, we believe this will empower the investment community to use capital allocation as an engagement tool.
LGIM’s purpose is “to create a better future through responsible investing”. We have always been clear that one of the primary ways in which we can achieve this is through our stewardship activities – using our influence as a major institutional investor, both through voting with the shares we own and through collaboration with peers and policymakers to raise overall standards in the market.
