Proprietary ESG toolkit
Most sustainability funds rely on third party scoring or screening for ESG analysis, but these are typically inconsistent andbackward looking. We’ve developed a unique platform of tools to measure the impact of our investments on ESG issues, using a vast traditional and non- traditional data set. This gives us the best opportunity to identify sustainable companies that are able to maintain above average growth and returns over the long term.
