ESG roundup: New COVID-19 bill to provide legal certainty about AGMs [updated]

first_imgThe UK government has introduced legislation that stands to provide legal certainty to companies about annual general meetings (AGMs) and shareholder communication in light of social distancing needs linked to the coronavirus, it has been said.Introduced in parliament yesterday, the bill consists of insolvency and corporate governance measures to address challenges faced by companies resulting from the impact of the coronavirus.One of the measures, which is temporary, is to allow businesses to hold closed AGMs and conduct business and communicate with members electronically; filing deadlines have also been extended. The bill provides for the temporary measures to be retrospective.Andrew Ninian, director of stewardship and corporate governance at the Investment Association, said: “AGMs provide a vital forum for shareholders to hold companies to account and for companies to get the required approvals from their shareholders. “This bill will provide legal certainty to companies that have held or are due to hold their AGMs allowing them to respect the social distancing measures currently in place.“We would continue to encourage all companies to consider how they can engage with their retail and institutional shareholders in lieu of the physical AGM,” he added.Simon Rawson, director of corporate engagement at responsible investment campaign group ShareAction, said the bill was helpful in that it clarified that companies could lawfully hold virtual AGMs even if their articles of association didn’t permit them, but “unhelpful in that it doesn’t discourage ‘closed door’ AGMs”.According to Gareth Sykes, lawyer at Herbert Smith Freehills, the legislation would allow companies to hold fully virtual AGMs via an app but also puts “on a firmer footing” the approach that most companies have been taking in the past couple of months of discharging the AGM business with the minimum number of shareholders required to make up the quorum.This can be only two or three directors, with the bill making clear that they could discharge the AGM business over the telephone or via Skype rather than having to meet at a physical venue.Sykes said the legislation made it very clear that shareholders do not have a right to attend the AGM in person and are only entitled to participate in voting.The article was updated to add comments from Gareth SykesMSCI makes more ESG metrics publicMSCI has made public more environmental, social and governance (ESG) information, having today announced it has done so for ESG fund ratings for 36,000 mutual funds and ETFs, and ESG metrics for all of MSCI Limited’s EU-regulated equity and blended indices covered by the EU Benchmark Regulation.The ratings and metrics are available as part of two new search tools available to anyone on the MSCI website.The index-level search tool was launched to comply with a new EU regulatory requirement for benchmark administrators, also providing information about whether the EU-regulated equity and blended indices include ESG metrics. It said it would disclose ESG metrics for its fixed income indices in the coming weeks.The index-level metrics being provided are based on recommendations in the final report of the technical expert group advising the European Commission on sustainable finance, as the relevant final regulations have not been implemented.In November MSCI released ESG ratings of over 2,800 issuers.Remy Briand, head of ESG at MSCI, said: “We are proud to provide investors and industry stakeholders with publicly available ESG metrics for tens of thousands of funds, companies and indexes, helping to drive awareness, educate the market and raise ESG disclosure standards.”Folksam pumps SEK2.5bn into municipal green bondsSweden’s Folksam invested SEK2.5bn (€237m) in a SEK5bn green bond issue from Swedish local government debt agency Kommuninvest, it has announced.The SEK442bn pensions and insurance group said that after buying the bond, which has three years to maturity, it now has a total of around SEK30bn of its assets invested in green bonds.Michael Kjeller, Folksam Group deputy chief executive officer and head of asset management and sustainability, said: “This investment contributes to pension money providing double benefits to savers, by allowing the local transition to continue while pension money grows.”The firm said Kommuninvest issued green bonds to finance schemes by Swedish municipalities that contributed to climate mitigation, adding that the tally of such green projects had increased significantly to number 329 at the end of last year.Folksam said it was dividing the investment across its subsidiaries, with municipal pensions subsidiary KPA Pension taking SEK1.2bn of the issue, the group’s life insurance arm investing SEK1.1bn and general insurance division Folksam Sak investing SEK200m.According to Kommuninvest, the green bond issue 1.6 times oversubscribed, with 15 investors participating.LAPFF lays down COVID-19 corporate governance expectationsThe UK’s Local Authority Pension Fund Forum (LAPFF) has said it will “demand the highest standards of corporate governance from company boards as they tackle the fallout from COVID-19”.Councillor Doug McMurdo, chair of the LAPFF, said: “Responsible investors always need to be sensitive to the varied and variable operating markets that companies inhabit.“However, this does not mean giving companies a free pass in hard times, which would be self-defeating. It is time now to double down to protect sustainable business practices and long-term shareholder returns in the downturn and lay the foundations for their growth in the recovery.”LAPFF is an association of 82 UK public sector pension funds and six asset pooling vehicles iwth combined assets of around £300bn.S&P Global launches ESG scoresS&P Global has followed up its acquisition of the SAM ESG ratings and benchmarking business units from RobecoSAM in January with the launch of proprietary ESG scores for more than 7,300 companies, representing 95% of market capitalisation.The scores are based on the SAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA), a widely recognised annual evaluation of companies’ sustainability practices that came with the acquisition of SAM earlier this year.The scores will be made available to investors through S&P Global’s flagship data feed management solution.Martina Cheung, president of S&P Global Market Intelligence, said: “We are seeing more and more decision-makers across all segments leverage the benefits of Xpressfeed to accelerate data integration and analysis for their business strategy.“The S&P Global ESG Scores are backed by 20 years of SAM’s comprehensive assessments enabling market participants to optimize their portfolios and allocate capital towards positive ESG performance.”“Simply asking companies questions without providing feedback and encouraging improvements would not be classified as an engagement”UBS Asset ManagementUBS engagement trackingUBS Asset Management has published a new metric to keep track of progress made during meetings with companies that meet its definition of engagement.Last year the asset manager introduced an “enhanced” internal tracking system to assess progress against defined engagement objectives, and in its recent stewardship report it disclosed the metric resulting from that for the first time.It said that since introducing the system, 23% of engagements it has undertaken “showed progress against identified areas for improvements to manage risks and take advantage of new opportunities”.“As this is a new metric and for some of our engagements formalised engagement objectives have only recently been introduced, we expect future reporting to record increased numbers in terms of engagement progress,” it said.The asset manager held more than 1,400 meetings with prospective or investee companies last year, but only counts a quarter (358) of them as amounting to engagements.“Corporate engagement implies a two-way dialogue between investors and companies,” it said. “Simply asking companies questions without providing feedback and encouraging improvements would not be classified as an engagement.”UBS asset revealed that from this AGM season, its proxy voting policy allows it to vote against the board of directors of a company due to poor dialogue and progress on climate change risks and opportunities.To read the digital edition of IPE’s latest magazine click here.last_img read more

FHP Tracks Down Vehicle Possibly Involved in Shooting 13 Cars on Central Florida’s I-4

first_imgThe Florida Highway Patrol announced Thursday they have located a vehicle that was possibly involved, although they did not provide details.Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood tweeted that it appeared as if a small caliber, pellet or BB gun may have been involved, although that remains unconfirmed. He does not believe it was a targeted sniper situation.One victim says his driver-side back window was struck with either a pellet or BB gun, but he did not hear anything until his window actually cracked.Multiple law enforcement agencies are now investigating the incident. Authorities are investigating reports of multiple vehicles being fired upon Wednesday on I-4 between northern Seminole County and southern Volusia County.Officials say that no one was injured, although at least 13 cars were struck.Remember that INITIAL info often turns out wrong. 6 callers reporting damage by gunshots on I-4 from the Seminole Co. line, east to I-95 and north to the Flagler line. No injuries. Preliminarily it looks like a small caliber/pellet/BB gun may be involved, but that is unconfirmed. https://t.co/k1vKrKF0Lp— Mike Chitwood (@SheriffChitwood) January 2, 2020last_img read more

A relaxed Shohei Ohtani passes his first regular season test, as Angels’ DH

first_imgThen asked if he would be nervous on Sunday, when he will be the Angels’ starting pitcher, he said: “Probably.”Ohtani’s comfort level at both is certain to increase throughout the season, as he adjusts to his new life in the major leagues, where the mound and the ball and the opponents and even the media are all new to him.As the world watched him struggle through spring training in his attempt to become a two-way success in the majors, there were few signs of concern from Ohtani or the Angels.While there was talk among outsiders that Ohtani, 23, might need some seasoning at Triple-A, the Angels never seriously considered it. General Manager Billy Eppler said before Thursday’s game that Ohtani’s raw talent, and his history over five years in Japan’s major leagues, were more important than his spring training batting average or ERA.“Our evaluations, historical evaluations plus the track record in a league which we deem as close to the major leagues as you can get, point us in the direction of saying ‘Give this guy the opportunity to let his ability and his tools show,’” Eppler said. “So that’s what were going to do.” Angels blow lead twice, open season with 11-inning loss to A’s PreviousThe Angels’ Shohei Ohtani bats during the sixth inning of Thursday’s season opener against the A’s in Oakland.

(AP Photo/Ben Margot)ExpandOAKLAND — Mike Scioscia quipped on Thursday morning that Shohei Ohtani was like two people, one a hitter and one a pitcher.Turns out that one of those people is more relaxed than the other.After Ohtani’s major league debut as a hitter, a day in which he singled on the first pitch he saw and then made four outs, he said that he didn’t really have any nerves leading up to the milestone moment.“As a hitter, I was never really nervous on opening day,” Ohtani said through his interpreter. “That’s probably an at-bat I’m not going to forget for the rest of my life,” Ohtani said.The rest of his day didn’t go quite as well. He grounded out three times and he struck out. He did hit a couple hard ground balls, and he showed exceptional speed running down the line.“I thought Shohei was fine,” Scioscia said. “He came in and had some good swings. Got the base hit and hit a couple balls hard. Out of the chute, it’s good for him to get out there.”Scioscia said they’ll check on Ohtani on Friday to see if he’s OK to be the DH again. Presumably, he’d then get Saturday off in preparation for his start on Sunday.Related Articles It seems the Angels are going to stick close to what Ohtani’s routine was in Japan. His first start will come on seven days’ rest from his last outing of the spring. He has started only one time in the spring on less than six days’ rest, and that was following a 31-pitch outing.Eppler wouldn’t say if the Angels plan to keep him pitching once a week indefinitely.“With all of our players we try to make them as comfortable as possible so we look into historical workloads with everybody and try to allow that to happen if possible,” he said. “With the other starters in our rotation or guys who are candidates to join our rotation at some point in time, biomechanically and from a workload management standpoint, the less load and volume it stands to reason he greater the opportunity for recovery is.”center_img When the first lineup of the season was posted in the Angels’ clubhouse on Thursday morning, Ohtani was listed as the designated hitter, batting eighth.He rewarded the Angels for their confidence on the first pitch he saw from Kendall Graveman, yanking it into right field for a single.
