Tabula Investment Management has strengthened its commitment to sustainable investment by becoming a signatory to Climate Action 100+.
Since its launch in December 2017, the investor-led initiative has sought to engage with the world’s largest corporations and encourage them to improve their governance on climate change, reduce their emissions, and improve their climate-related disclosure.
Prior to joining the Climate Action 100+ initiative, Tabula was already a signatory to the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investing (PRI), a member of the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) and engaged with index providers to help improve the ESG credentials of fixed income indices.
Michael John Lytle, CEO of Tabula, said the company was proud to be a signatory to Climate Action 100+, as part of their efforts to promote ESG within fixed income investing.
He added: “Fund managers – both active and passive - and the investors they represent, have a key role to play in tackling the range of issues that fall under the ESG umbrella.
“Sustainability and good governance are embedded in everything we do at Tabula, from how we manage investments and run our company, to how we interact with the community.”
Stephanie Pfeifer, CEO of the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change, and Climate Action 100+ global Steering Committee member, said Climate Action 100+ now covers 540 investors and over $52 trillion in assets.
“Each new investor has a key role to play in building on the success of the initiative to date. As the latest signatory, I look forward to Tabula playing a full and active role in engagement through Climate Action 100+ going forward,” Pfeifer added.
Highlighting the push into ESG, the fixed income ETF specialist launched Europe’s first investment grade bond climate ETF, the Tabula EUR IG Bond Paris-aligned Climate UCITS ETF (TABC).
