As an investor, we raise awareness on ESG matters to create long-term value; if we divest, we lose that opportunity. We strengthen our voice by joining forces with specific collaborative organizations including: Asian Corporate Governance Association is an independent, non-profit membership organization dedicated to working with investors, companies, and regulators in implementing effective corporate governance practices throughout Asia. A member since 2005, we support regulatory efforts. Canadian Coalition for Good Governance is an organization promoting good governance in Canadian public companies. Its priorities include increasing the number of say-on-pay votes in Canada. A member since 2003, bcIMC served as chair (2006–2009) and sits on the board and the public policy committee. International Corporate Governance Network is a global organization that aims to enhance corporate governance standards. Its membership includes 600 leaders in corporate governance from 50 countries; bcIMC joined in 2005. PRI is the industry standard for responsible investment. The international network consists of more than 1,200 members, representing U.S.$34.0 trillion in assets under management. bcIMC was a founding signatory in 2006. We are a member of the policy and research steering committee as well as the private equity steering committee. OUR COMMITMENT TO RESPONSIBLE INVESTING With our $114-billion global portfolio of gross assets, bcIMC is among the world's most influential responsible investors. We are a founding signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), an international initiative to develop and promote best practice in responsible investing by institutional investors. Our website provides regular reports and updates on our activities. www.bcimc.com
