Sustainable investing


As the global economy evolves to address sustainability issues, companies that most effectively manage the opportunities and risks it creates should be better positioned for long-term success.

A careful consideration of ESG issues plays a key and integral part in how we unlock sustainable investment opportunities.

What are the ESG considerations?


Environmental (E)

How companies are making an impact on the
environment by the way they manage their
waste, water use and pollution

Social (S)

How companies engage with and impact their
communities, what their labour practices are,
and more

Governance (G)

How a company is governed, what oversight
and controls they have in place,
the diversity of their board, etc.


What is a lower-carbon investment strategy?

As climate-related risks materialise and carbon is more effectively priced, a lower-carbon investment strategy could mitigate the downside risks and create opportunities:


 Managing climate change risks  

 Lower the impacts from climate  
 change risks 


Leveraging GREEN opportunities

Capture opportunities from companies
  developing new technologies
 to tackle climate change


              Staying flexible              

Grade companies according to their
carbon intensity to ensure sectors
like energy will not be excluded
