We invest for positive social impact, whilst meeting the financial objectives of the portfolio. We seek to avoid ethical controversies wherever possible. The IMPACT SCORE
states the extent to which the portfolio actually invests in solutions to social and environmental challenges, and also the extent of any ethical compromises.
The IMPACT SCORE is the percentage of the overall portfolio, held in companies that provide a direct solution to a social or environmental challenge. These include:
resource efficiency, renewable energy, social infrastructure, sustainable transport, inclusive and ethical finance, healthcare, clean air and water, education and training, safety and security, and sustainable food.
