What does responsible investment mean in practice?
“This is about embedding the interest of society alongside the interest of investors. Companies that abuse the environment, treat staff poorly, damage the fabric of society, will, in a timeframe, be challenged by the regulators and deserted by customers. Therefore, considerations of these material factors must be part of any credible long-term investment research process.”
Despite the challenges responsible investment funds have faced in the half of 2022, interest and demand has not waned. In this panel from Responsible Pathway Live, we explored what responsible investment looks like in practice, how to identify the right securities, the role of metrics in understanding sustainability, engagement in sovereign bonds and more.
