How One Asset Manager Tackles ESG
Boston Trust Walden had been focused on this area for over 40 years.
Jon Hale: Hi, I'm Jon Hale, head of sustainable investing research at Morningstar. As part of our sustainable investing initiative here at Morningstar, we've begun a focus on fund engagement and proxy voting. Through these means, investors as shareholders are increasingly influencing corporate behavior around ESG issues. I'm speaking today with Tim Smith, director of ESG shareholder engagement at asset manager Boston Trust Walden.
Tim, thank you for joining me.
