Hermes EOS and ACSI share engagement insight

The Australian Council of Superannuation Investors (ACSI) is partnering with Hermes EOS to provide engagement services to its clients and members.

ACSI is the leading authority on managing environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in Australian equity markets and its members include 39 Australian and international asset owners and institutional investors, who collectively own on average 10 per cent of every ASX200 company.

Hermes EOS, which provides stewardship services on £26bn of assets for Australian clients, currently provides international engagement services to some ACSI members and engages on topics such as climate change, conduct, culture and ethics, diversity and human rights, as well as corporate governance and shareholder meeting related issues.

Dr. Hans-Christoph Hirt, Head of Hermes EOS, said: “We are seeing increased appetite from investors in Australia for demonstrably effective stewardship services. Working with ACSI will result in a greater flow of information and level of insight for both organisations, our stakeholders and ultimately more impactful engagement with companies around the world.”
