Benefits of active ESG investing
The way that companies address ESG issues such as climate change, diversity and inclusion, and cybersecurity varies widely across sectors, markets and individual organisations. As governments, regulators and consumers align behind net zero targets and other sustainability goals, these factors will only matter more to the bottom line.
Corporate disclosures and third-party ESG scoring are improving all the time, but to understand ESG considerations in the detail that is required – and reﬂect that understanding in portfolios – there is no substitute for in-house research, company engagement and active management.
