The New ESG: Methods for Investing in a Changing World

An insightful approach to ESG investing may require deeper analysis of societal trends and business fundamentals.

  • ESG investing today is about finding companies who are working to provide solutions for major evolutions in global demographics, technology, environment and governance.
  • Sustainable investing does not mean environmental issues and exclusion alone – it means investing in innovation over the long term.
  • Mirova’s team of sustainable investing analysts rate companies according to the UN Sustainable Development Goals to help determine their prospects for long-term success.
Sustainable investing focuses on investments in companies that relate to certain sustainable development themes and demonstrate adherence to environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices, therefore a portfolio's universe of investments may be reduced. It may sell a security when it could be disadvantageous to do so or forgo opportunities in certain companies, industries, sectors or countries. This could have a negative impact on performance depending on whether such investments are in or out of favor.
