CalPERS Releases “First Report on Our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Work”

CalPERS is proud to announce the release of our first report on our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) work. The report explains the fiduciary framework we have adopted to integrate sustainability across the total fund, illustrates achievements from the last few years, and outlines our vision for the future.

Here’s what you’ll find inside the report:

CalPERS views on Sustainable Investing
The “3 Ps” of the CalPERS program: Priorities, Performance and Procurement
How CalPERS integrates ESG in its own operations
Our strategic themes of alignment of interest, climate change and human capital

Sustainability in its simplest form is the ability to continue, said Anne Simpson, Director of Corporate Governance for CalPERS. There are both risks and opportunities ahead. The ESG framework we're adopting will help us make better investment decisions for the long term.
