Church pensions investor calls out proxy advisers over climate voting advice

first_imgIn the statement reacting to ISS’s and Glass Lewis’ advice, CEPB’s Matthews said their decision “raises serious questions about how investors can receive advice that enables them to meet their fiduciary duties to navigate the financial risks posed by climate change”.“Our fear is that continued inertia in the proxy voting system will ultimately prevent the objectives of key engagement interventions such as Climate Action 100+ being achieved,” he added. The Church of England Pensions Board (CEPB) has criticised influential proxy voting advisers’ stance on climate change-related resolutions ahead of an annual general meeting of mining company BHP in London next week.In a statement, Adam Matthews, head of ethics and engagement at the £2.3bn (€2.5bn) CEPB, called on the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) to convene “a high-level meeting of climate aware asset owners with the heads of the proxy voting providers to discuss a fit for purpose approach to climate change voting”.The statement was issued this morning after it emerged earlier this week that ISS and Glass Lewis had decided not to recommend investors vote in favour of a climate lobbying shareholder resolution at BHP. The resolution, which was co-filed by CEPB, calls on BHP to suspend its membership of industry associations whose lobbying activities are inconsistent with the goals of the Paris agreement on climate change.The proxy advisers’ standard recommendation to investors was to vote against the resolution, with both service providers noting that the final decision was investors’. The BHP board has recommended shareholders oppose. “The decision by ISS and Glass Lewis … raises serious questions about how investors can receive advice that enables them to meet their fiduciary duties to navigate the financial risks posed by climate change”Adam Matthews, head of ethics and engagement at the Church of England Pensions BoardAccording to the CEPB, as of this morning investors with more than £2.1trn (€2.3trn) of assets under management had indicated they would support the resolution. Aberdeen Standard Investments, which holds around 3.2% of BHP shares, publicly declared its support for the resolution early this afternoon.Not all proxy voting agencies recommended a vote against the resolution: PIRC, a smaller outfit, recommended shareholders support it.BHP’s London AGM is on 17 October 2019, with the Sydney AGM on 7 November.The ISS and Glass Lewis perspectiveAaron Bertinetti, senior vice president, research and engagement at Glass Lewis, responded to CEPB’s statement, saying that the firm’s clients made their own judgements on proxy voting matters “as required of fiduciaries acting on behalf of the investments and retirements of their beneficiaries”.The company’s advice was an input to “the sophisticated decision-making processes” they used to do this, he added.“Climate change is a very serious and material issue, but it is not the only issue that is of concern or required to be considered by fiduciaries”Aaron Bertinetti, senior vice president, research and engagement at Glass Lewis“Climate change is a very serious and material issue, but it is not the only issue that is of concern or required to be considered by fiduciaries,” said Bertinetti. “[W]e do not blindly support or oppose issue-based proposals, we support some but not others based on whether each individual proposal is in the best interests of shareholders at each particular company.”ISS has a policy not to provide ad hoc comment to media on “evolving stock-specific situations”.A spokeswoman noted that clients can request custom and speciality policies, which can include policies based on sustainability considerations, and also said the ultimate voting decision was the responsibility of the investor, in keeping with their fiduciary duties.The reasoning behind the firms’ non-tailored voting recommendation on the BHP climate lobbying resolution was roughly similar. Both noted, among other points, that the company was carrying out a further review of its industry associations and was due to publish a report on this soon.Glass Lewis said BHP had “demonstrated responsiveness” to shareholders’ concerns about positions taken by their trade associations, and that it believed the company was “in the best position to determine what actions to take regarding either productive engagement with or its membership status with its industry associations”.Fiona Reynolds, CEO of the PRI, said the organisation would be happy to organise a meeting with asset owners and proxy advisory firms.“As an industry, we must acknowledge that one of the key reasons the world is so far behind in limiting the world to 1.5 degrees of warming is that the negative corporate climate lobby is winning the day with delay and denial,” she said.Last year the PRI produced a guide to help investors engage with portfolio companies on their direct and indirect lobbying practices related to climate policy.last_img read more

Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsored Agriculture, Beef, Conservation, Deforestation, Environment, Forests, Logging, Rainforest Deforestation, Threats To Rainforests, Tropical Forests Article published by danielcenter_img The British military sourced beef for ration packs from Brazilian meatpacker JBS despite its history of corruption, poor environmental record and links to human rights abuses.Ration packs supplied to the UK armed forces between 2009 and 2016 were found to be manufactured by JBS and supplied by Vestey Foods.The sources of JBS beef imported by Vestey into the UK could not be confirmed and may not have come from illegally deforested lands or suspect supply chains.Cattle ranching is the largest single driver of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon and a significant contributor to tropical carbon emissions. A recent wave of forest fires in the region prompted a global outcry and calls for tougher action to curb environmental destruction. The British military has for years sourced beef for soldiers’ ration packs from scandal-plagued Brazilian meatpacker JBS despite its history of corruption, poor environmental record and links to human rights abuses, research by NGO Earthsight has found.Ration packs supplied to the UK armed forces between 2009 and 2016 were found to be manufactured by JBS. By analysing shipping records, Earthsight found that Vestey Foods, a major supplier to the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), used JBS beef in at least four official ration packs.While JBS was no longer named as the producer of the ration packs from 2016, shipping data showed the firm supplied hundreds of tons of Brazilian beef and chicken worth $4.2 million to Vestey Foods between 2014 and 2019. However, Earthsight notes, the sources of JBS beef imported by Vestey into the UK could not be confirmed.“[A]lthough the army ration packs that have previously contained JBS beef may not have come from illegally deforested lands or suspect supply chains, questions remain about the MoD’s possible continuing relationship with a firm that has such a chequered history,” Earthsight said.Cattle ranching is the largest single driver of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon and a significant contributor to tropical carbon emissions. A recent wave of forest fires in the region prompted a global outcry and calls for tougher action to curb environmental destruction.JBS is one of three Brazilian firms known to have supplied beef to the UK armed forces, along with Minerva and SulBeef, which supply beef to armed forces personnel stationed in Bahrain, according to Earthsight.Sam Lawson, Earthsight director, said JBS had “flouted environmental standards for years and for the UK government to have been bumping up their profits, even if indirectly, is a major environmental own goal.”The MoD, JBS and Vestey Foods did not respond to a request for comment, but the MoD told Earthsight it was “committed to upholding ethical procurement practices” and was “working with our suppliers to address any concerns surrounding the recent link between sourcing beef from Brazil and deforestation.”In an FOI response to Earthsight the MoD said that 107 products were “deemed available to be ordered” in 2017 and 2018 that contained beef or beef products and that “four contain beef sourced from Brazil using Brazilian meat,” but added that it could not confirm how many of those products were actually supplied.British army ration packs have used JBS meat since 2009. Photo by Earthsight.JBS is the world’s largest meat producer with revenues last year of more than $43 billion. Until 2016, the company sourced beef from notorious rancher Antônio José Junqueira Vilela Filho, who was arrested in 2016 following a two-year criminal investigation that found he led a sophisticated criminal network responsible for illegally clearing over 30,000 hectares of public forests in the Brazilian state of Para.The following year, JBS was fined £6.5 million ($8.1 million) for buying 50,000 cattle from deforested Amazon land. The company denied wrongdoing. Also in 2017, JBS was raided by federal agents after it was discovered to have bribed sanitation inspectors to allow rotten meat to be sold.JBS’ founders, brothers Joesley and Wesley Batista, admitted last year to making about $180 million in illegal campaign donations over a decade to more than 1,800 candidates in return for favorable policy-making as part of Operation Car Wash, one of the largest corruption scandals in Latin American history.“The fact that the Ministry of Defence allowed JBS beef to be used in contracts in the past, and possibly still does, is at best a procurement oversight,” Lawson said. “If the UK government is truly committed to protecting the Amazon and preventing deforestation, then ensuring that none of its departments are using beef from potentially suspect sources in Brazil would be a good place to start.”last_img read more

Geolorean: A Check-in App with Check.in Integration

first_imgWhat it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Yesterday we looked at Check.in, the universal check-in Web application that provides a single interface for registering your location with several location-based social networking services like Foursquare and Brightkite. Today, we’re learning of a native iPhone application that integrates Check.in’s functionality: Geolorean. Not only does the new Geolorean application provide all the features of Check.in, it also provides an aggregated view of all your friends’ check-ins across the applications it supports: Gowalla, Brightkite, and Foursquare.Check-ins and Check-in StreamsThe Web page for Geolorean answers the first question we had about this application: Is this new? The site reads: “What do you mean you’ve seen this? It’s brand new.”Well, indeed it is. Check.in only launched out of private beta yesterday and already here’s an app taking advantage of the functionality it provides. The App Store, though, shows an “Update Date” of May 6th for Geolorean and the app itself launched back in late April. That means it actually launched even before Check.in went into public beta. If only we had known!Geolorean (love the name, by the way) is a creation of two Chicago developers, Andy LaVoy and Max Beatty. With this $0.99 app you can view an aggregated stream of your friends’ check-ins and you can locate your friends on a map where you can see the details of each check-in. And when you’re out and need to check in somewhere, you can use the Check.in Web service, which is integrated into the application by way of a Web view. When selecting this option, Check.in launches within the app, not in an external Safari window. Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology sarah perez Tags:#Apple#Location#mobile#web The iTunes app description promises more “updates and expanded features soon,” but apparently that won’t include any additional location-based services for the time being. According to a Q&A on the app’s homepage, it will add other services only “if another one gets popular.” (Does no one use Loopt?) However, the site does mention that you’ll soon be able to use the app to merge contacts across the three supported services into a single contact in order to better track their check-ins. There isn’t much more to this app, but I tried it this morning and it worked well without any crashes or noticeable bugs. Of course, I’m sitting here at home writing about it so I haven’t been able to test the Check.in feature yet. But based on my previous experience with the standalone Web app, it should do just fine. If you’re interested in trying Geolorean for yourself, you can grab it from iTunes here. last_img read more

Ohio State Michigan renew rivalry with weekend faceoff

Near the midway point of its 2009-10 campaign, the Ohio State men’s hockey team will host the team up north.This weekend, the Buckeyes (4-5-1 CCHA, 6-9-1 overall) will host the Michigan Wolverines (3-5-0 CCHA, 7-7-0 overall) in a vital CCHA rivalry matchup. The contests aren’t only significant because of the schools’ historic rivalry, but because they provide an opportunity for both teams to move up in the CCHA standings as both squads move closer to the main stretch of the season.Ohio State trails the all-time series with Michigan, 29-64-11, and has lost six of the past 10 meetings.Michigan currently sits near the CCHA cellar in 11th place, while OSU checks in at the eighth spot. The Buckeyes will be storming into this series riding one of their finest victories of the season after defeating No. 6 Bemidji State in overtime 2-1 on Nov. 28. OSU also improved its record to 5-2-1 in Saturday’s contests. The Buckeyes will look to turn around their abysmal 1-7-0 record on Friday.Coming off of a 29-12-0 overall record and a 20-8-0 CCHA record, in which it led the CCHA in overall team offense and was tied for the best team defense, Michigan was skating into this season with dreams of a CCHA championship.It looked as if the Wolverines would follow the coaches and media poll predictions of being in the top spot in the CCHA as they started 4-2. But contests versus elite opponents such as Miami University and Michigan State humbled Michigan as it fell in five consecutive contests.However, the Wolverines have turned the page, as the team has won its past three contests while outscoring its opponents 13-3.Both schools’ coaches have left a significant mark on their school’s program. Red Berenson is in his 26th year as the coach of the Wolverines. He has also accounted for two of Michigan’s NCAA-record nine NCAA Division I championships.John Markell is in his 14th season behind the Ohio State bench. He has led the Buckeyes to the NCAA tournament five times, the only appearances in program history.Michigan will enter this weekend’s contests hosting a number of the CCHA’s best offensive players. Junior forward Carl Hagelin leads the Wolverines with 12 points and seven goals. Fellow junior forwards Matt Rust and Louie Caporusso have scored 11 and 10 goals apiece, respectively.Junior goalie Bryan Hogan has started between the poles every contest for the Wolverines and hosts an impressive .903 save percentage and a goals allowed per game average of 2.30.Zac Dalpe is the Buckeyes’ lead scorer. The junior has a team-high nine goals and 17 points.Ohio State has two goaltenders who stand in the crease every other contest. Sophomore Cal Heeter currently holds a superior record to senior goaltender Dustin Carlson, at 5-2-1 compared to 1-7-0. But Carlson actually holds a better save percentage, .908 to Heeter’s .907.This weekend’s matchup between the two schools will add another chapter to one of the most historic rivalries in collegiate sports. OSU will host Michigan at the Schottenstein Center Friday at 7:05 p.m. and Saturday at 8:05 p.m. read more
