Geopolitical ESG Report
The ESG Risk Factor Review Committee was originally created to review investments potentially meeting the criteria of the Sudan or Iran divestment legislation. Since that time, the Committee has expanded to review issues that relate to CalSTRS Investment Policy for Mitigating Environmental, Social and Governance Risks. The Committee reviews issues that fall under CalSTRS Investment Policy for Mitigating Environmental, Social and Governance Risks, which includes, reviewing companies identified under divestment legislation, labor issues, CalSTRS tobacco divestment, other health related investment issues, and tracking geopolitical issues around the world to identify potential risks to the fund.
In December of every year, the Committee files our annual combined investment report that details our implementation of various legislative mandates including Iran, Sudan and Northern Ireland acts. The most recent investment report can be found at CalSTRS Legislative Reports.
