Recent media reports noted that the S&P Dow Jones Indices had dropped Tesla from sustainability indexes and added exposure to multinational oil companies. When we examine companies, we focus on what is changing, either for the better or the worse, in the ESG performance areas Calvert prioritizes in each industry segment. We are interested in how companies are managing evolving and emerging risks, taking advantage of market and business opportunities, and addressing systemic barriers to improvement on ESG factors. Calvert sees Tesla as a company working to strengthen ESG practices and achieving incremental yet notable progress. We also believe the company must be more strategic in managing its human capital and proactive in addressing diversity, equity and inclusion issues; and we expect it to engage with investors and other stakeholders to do so.
