NESPF seeks to encourage the companies it invests in to operate the highest standards of corporate governance and corporate social responsibility. As a major long term shareholder, the main tools open to the NESPF to use its influence is by the responsible exercise of its voting power and engagement on social and environmental factors with the companies in which it invests.
