    LOIM’s stewardship in 2021: seeking progress on climate and nature

    Head of Stewardship

    At LOIM, we believe that stewardship plays a vital role in protecting and enhancing the long-term value of the assets entrusted to us. As part of the sustainability transition articulated through our CLIC™ model, stewardship is a key lever to create impact in the real economy.

    Through engagement, voting and collaborative efforts, we seek to help companies align their businesses with sustainable transition pathways – which are net-zero, nature-positive and fair – while promoting best-in-class business practices and managing any controversies that may arise.

    Our stewardship activity in 2021 continued the work we carried out during 2020, which has been recognised by the Financial Reporting Council. LOIM is a proud signatory of the UK Stewardship Code, due to our integration of stewardship in investment processes and the outcomes of our practices1.

    We demonstrate our stewardship responsibilities through engagement and voting. In this summary, we discuss what our practices, statements and engagement priorities were in 2021, as well as explaining our proxy voting framework. Case studies further describe the approaches we took with companies across a range of sectors.
