Sustainable Investment Strategic Partners
Wespath’s strategic partnerships allow us to pool our resources and voices to achieve greater influence with companies across market sectors and around the globe. We work in partnership with other like-minded investors and organizations dedicated to corporate accountability and sustainability.
Our strategic partners complement Wespath’s full range of sustainable investing activities and include the groups below. We also work informally with our investor peers on issues of mutual concern.
We often find opportunities to work with other asset owners separate from those partnerships in order to promote sustainable investment on a global scale. We have taken advantage of two unique opportunities—the Transition Pathway Initiative (TPI) and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board’s (SASB) Investor Advisory Group (IAG)—to join together with our peers to help shape the global sustainability reporting landscape.
