Oversight

The CC&L Board of Directors has ultimate responsibility for the firm’s approach to Responsible Investing (RI). In 2015, the Board established the CC&L ESG Committee which has representation from each of our investment, client solutions and compliance teams. The ESG Committee is required to meet at least three times per year, however, in practice, meetings and discussions are more frequent. The composition of the CC&L ESG Committee was purposefully created in order to facilitate the flow of information between the CC&L ESG Committee and the investment teams as well as to foster dialogue across investment teams.

The CC&L ESG Committee reports directly to the Board and its mandate is to oversee and coordinate firm wide RI activities including:

  • Integration of ESG factors in our investment processes,
  • Education and internal communication of industry best practices and gathering of team insights regarding RI,
  • External communication efforts, including RI reporting to our clients,
  • Stewardship and engagement practices, including proxy voting,
  • ESG related policies and guidelines, including our proxy voting policy,
  • Oversight of CC&L’s contribution to industry collaborative initiatives, including as a signatory to the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investing (PRI),
  • Review and evaluation of additional industry collaborative initiatives, and
  • Recommendations to our investment teams and CC&L’s Board for improvements in all of these areas.

Each investment team is responsible for ensuring the firm’s ESG policies are being implemented.

As at December 31, 2019, the CC&L ESG Committee is comprised of the following individuals*:

*All have been committee members since the creation of the CC&L ESG Committee in 2015, with the exception of Brian Milne who replaced David George on March 4, 2019.
