Environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors have an impact on the financial performance of investments and long-term shareholder value. They also affect the sustainability of capital markets on which pension funds depend.

SHARE supports pension funds to become active owners by exercising their shareowner rights through proxy voting and shareholder engagement services and encouraging market level practices that make capital markets sustainable. SHARE also provides pension fund boards of trustees with education and consulting services.
