Investor pressure over human rights pays off

04 Dec 2008, by in Pensions & Investment

Here’s an interesting piece from the Responsible Investor site about the impact that pressure from major investors such as pension funds can have on corporate behaviour.  Facilities management company Sodexo has agreed to adopt a human rights policy across all their activities after investors raised serious concerns  about the treatment of people at a UK detention centre run by the company. Swedish government pension funds who owned shares in the company have been engaging with Sodexo about these issues for the past year.
