Tool Overview

Industrial activities and economic development are undoubtedly creating a number of environmental concerns on a global scale. Resource consumption and environmental pollution have become mainstream social issues. Government regulation, consumer demand and innovative technologies have initiated a grand movement towards a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable future for society.

When applied to an investment strategy, sustainability refers to a sensible analytical approach towards fund development. Increased regulation and compliance litigation have persuaded corporations to implement systems that track and measure their environmental impact. Various companies specializing in corporate sustainability have developed rating scales to analyze hundreds of factors that contribute to the overall impact and management of the business. The major considerations of these assessments include environmental concerns such as waste disposal, emissions control, water and energy usage as well as management elements such as regulatory strategies and company transparency. Our sustainable strategy utilizes investing science as well as these environmental ratings.

From an environmental viewpoint, it makes sense to support companies who are on the forefront of innovation and have minimal environmental impact. From an empirical standpoint, the data and facts from these assessments rate companies on their likelihood of thriving and enduring long term. Sustainable investing is a prudent and viable strategy to emphasize environmental principles while using comprehensive assessment to make sound investments.

On a large scale, the desired affect of sustainable investing would be to wean out businesses with negative impact by tilting investment support towards those companies who are setting the curve of innovation and sustainable practices.
