Sustainable Investments

Our Approach

We advise clients to create and improve their ESG investment strategies. We offer due diligence and impact assessment services for ethical and impact-oriented investors. We help financial capital providers to:

  • systematically use environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in their investment decisions;
  • invest in the resource revolution opportunity (excludes fracking);
  • engage with the private sector on carbon-emissions reductions;

We help corporates and entrepreneurs to improve their ESG ratings.

Evidence is mounting that companies with better ESG performance also have a stronger financial performance giving incentive to investors to finance such businesses and investees to improve their ESG performance, achieve competitive differentiation and lower their financing cost.
