Sustainable investments are so much more than just a product trend. It's an investment philosophy that goes over and above return on investment calculations.
Here's why doing good for the planet means doing good for your portfolio, too.
Sustainable investing is about making responsible investment decisions that go beyond simply incorporating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into an investment process. Key factors include investing in progress through improved business processes, with the belief that companies offering solutions to the world’s greatest challenges will grow faster than those who don’t.
These investments solutions are comprised of themed securities related to sustainability and conducive to worldwide advancement, while also considering future financial returns. Organisations that promise to combat climate change and environmental destruction by developing clean tech, for example, fit this definition.
