Commenting, Matt Christensen. global head of sustainable and impact investing at Allianz Global Investors, said: “As an active investor, exercising our voting rights is one of the most powerful tools we have to effect change. In keeping with our desire to shape a more sustainable future with measurable positive outcomes, we want to ensure that our investee companies align their executive remuneration policies with ESG KPIs and we will vote against those that don’t. “
