Specialist fixed income ETF provider Tabula Investment Management has strengthened its commitment to sustainability and responsible investing by becoming a signatory to Climate Action 100+. This is a growing global initiative led by leading asset owners to encourage the world’s largest corporate greenhouse gas emitters take necessary action on climate change. Its central goals are to improve governance of climate change, reduce emissions and strengthen climate-related disclosure, primarily through proactive engagement.
Tabula is already actively involved in promoting sustainable investing. It is a signatory to the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and a member of the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC). It also actively engages with index providers to help improve ESG standards across new and existing fixed income indices.
“We are proud to be a signatory to Climate Action 100+, and this is just the latest example of our commitment to championing and promoting ESG investing in fixed income,” says Tabula CEO Michael John Lytle. “Fund managers – both active and passive – and the investors they represent, have a key role to play in tackling the range of issues that fall under the ESG umbrella. Sustainability and good governance are embedded in everything we do at Tabula, from how we manage investments and run our company, to how we interact with the community.”
Stephanie Pfeifer, CEO, Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change & Climate Action 100+ global Steering Committee member: “Now involving over 540 investors, representing more than USD52 trillion in assets, Climate Action 100+ continues to grow in scale, strength and impact. Each new investor has a key role to play in building on the success of the initiative to date. As the latest signatory, I look forward to Tabula playing a full and active role in engagement through Climate Action 100+ going forward.”
