Our corporate
responsibility program

As a responsible investment firm, strong corporate responsibility is part of the Invesco culture. Trust is built with our clients and stakeholders through our actions, so we act with integrity and consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in all of our decision-making.

Our corporate responsibility (CR) program prioritizes building a diverse, inclusive, empowered workforce; supporting strong communities and a healthy planet; and responsible investment stewardship.

In 2020—an unprecedented year that saw a global pandemic and a heightened and necessary focus on racial justice—our CR efforts included increased initiatives to support employee health and well-being and build a culture of inclusion where all forms of diversity thrive. We gave back to communities in our key focus area of financial literacy, while also providing support to COVID-19 relief efforts and racial justice organizations. Sustainability and climate change also continue to be a key focus for us and our clients, and we incorporate ESG considerations in all of our investment capabilities and our processes.

CR is a journey and there is always more we can do. Invesco is devoted to continuously improving our CR program and investment stewardship, while fostering greater transparency of this work.

Corporate Responsibility governance

We govern our CR efforts through the Invesco Corporate Responsibility Committee (CRC). The CRC is co-chaired by senior managing directors of EMEA and Investments, and includes our CEO and members of key functions of the company.

This committee oversees and drives the company’s global corporate responsibility strategy and investment stewardship programs and policies. The CRC also provides direction to Invesco’s investment and corporate stewardship leaders on core CR topics, and leads Invesco’s partnerships with charitable and community organizations, as well as our participation in industry advocacy and policy efforts. See Corporate governance for information on Corporate Governance at Invesco.

Our corporate responsibility pillars

Invesco’s CR program works toward progress in three main areas of focus, which have been updated to reflect our 2020 materiality assessment.
