Living Wage & the Engagement Gap
Today we publish our new research, “Living Wage and the Engagement Gap,” on the systemic risk of low wages and income inequality to diversified portfolio value, which depends on critical social and environmental systems. Among these is a stable and healthy workforce, which itself depends on living wages. Our new report highlights the role of system stewardship in addressing this risk, as well as how investors are using system stewardship to engage companies on paying a real living wage and why doing so improves overall portfolio returns for diversified shareholders.
