How climate change and Covid-19 changed the stewardship landscape

22-04-2021 | Webinar
The stewardship landscape evolved rapidly in 2020. Climate change took center stage as the most significant systemic ESG risk, while the defining feature of the year – the Covid-19 pandemic – reminded investors of the importance of the ‘S’ in ESG. These and other trends have influenced Robeco’s activities, all of which were addressed in our annual Stewardship Report.
