COVID-19 remains a serious threat to our health, communities, economies and investments. It requires action from investors, companies and governments. In the wake of the pandemic, we convened a series of signatory participation groups to determine short- and long-term investor priorities and worked to help signatories in their immediate ESG responses and planning for a sustainable longer-term recovery.
We published a report, Sustainable and inclusive: Covid-19 recovery and reform, providing recommendations for investor policy engagement and post-COVID-19 proposals for action and have also developed a library of COVID-19-related resources, including:
- ESG, credit risk and COVID-19;
- AGM season during the COVID-19 pandemic: trends and themes;
- Brazil during COVID-19: how responsible investors can drive real-world impact; and
- Water sanitation and hygiene during COVID-19.
We have also focused on supporting our own staff and ensuring their wellbeing during the pandemic – read more in Develop our staff.
