Proxy voting and engagement

An active sustainable voting policy combined with an engagement approach, creates a more effective positive sustainable impact and change consistent with our mission. The Fund believes in an effective and productive dialogue with company management in order to affect corporate behavior and advocate for better action and outcomes.

The UNJSPF adheres to sustainable investment proxy voting guidelines. These proxy voting guidelines are tailored to the Fund’s mission and commitment set forth in the IPS. OIM’s voting seeks to promote sustainable business practices and stewardship that advocates for improving the environment, fair labor practices, non-discrimination, and the protection of human rights. OIM’s sustainable voting policy generally references globally recognized sustainability-related initiatives such as the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). They promote a fair, unified and productive reporting and compliance environment. They advance positive corporate ESG actions which promote practices that present new opportunities or that mitigate related financial and reputational risks.
