Accelerating change for a better tomorrow
Real change requires a radical overhaul of the world economy. As a firm committed to building a sustainable world, we structure our investment research, company engagement, and macro stewardship activities around three key pillars: People, Earth and Climate. These represent what we believe to be the biggest sustainability challenges in the world today, namely social inequality, biodiversity loss and climate change.
Our Sustainable Transition range targets opportunities linked to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals that support and accelerate the transition to a sustainable future towards a socially just, nature positive and net zero economy.

Climate change, natural resource scarcity and social shifts are transforming the corporate landscape. Investors need to understand the implications of these sustainability megatrends to manage risks and seize opportunities.
Transitioning to a more sustainable future: How investors can help drive change
How the world is financed and powered; how complex ecosystems are maintained and resources shared all need to be radically transformed. Here, we set out our approach to supporting a sustainable transition across people, climate and Earth.
Mind the gap: An estimate of climate finance needs by developing countries to fund their NDC commitments
It is helpful to know how far we need to jump in order to land safely. Mind the gap provides a comprehensive overview and analysis of the costs of climate change mitigation and adaptation commitments under the Paris Agreement for developing countries. It looks at the gaps and challenges, offering policy and institutional recommendations.
Supply and demand: Tackling both sides of the carbon emissions equation
Despite progress through our Climate Engagement Escalation Programme, more action is needed from the world’s 30 systemically important carbon emitters, as Sora Utzinger and Louise Wihlborn explain.
Complex sustainability challenges cannot be addressed by investing in solutions opportunities alone. A broader cross-section approach to transition is required to maximise long-term return while seeking positive outcomes. Our leading approach to sustainable transition is applied consistently across asset classes and leverages the following key strengths:

The world is too interconnected to think small
Building a more sustainable future takes a wider, more meaningful, and joined-up approach.
It takes commitment and partnership across the interconnected challenges facing People, Climate, and Earth.
