Some Investable Themes for the Sustainable Development Agenda

As investors, we are committed to finding high conviction investment ideas2. We believe that a long-term theme, such as sustainability, requires a long-term view, and we only invest in companies after thorough research that incorporates detailed ESG analysis while exercising discipline in devaluation.

Following the 26th United Nations Conference of the Parties on climate change in Glasgow, climate and environmental issues are at the heart of the concerns of many investors1.

  • In the area of ​​climate, the challenge of reducing carbon emissions has become one of the most important and pressing topics on the sustainable development agenda. The global effort to limit rising temperatures will take decades of transition and require trillions of dollars of new investment across a wide range of economic activities.
  • Decarbonization requires significant investment in the development and deployment of renewable energy sources. And decarbonization will result in a general shift towards electrification, a trend that will drive growth in many sectors. Electric vehicles will be one of the most visible signs of this change.
  • Electrification and other efficiency innovations will also drive activity in other types of infrastructure, such as commercial and residential buildings, where more efficient construction will help reduce energy consumption.
  • Efficiency improvements will impact sectors ranging from infrastructure to agriculture. Technology will have an important role to play in making many industries more sustainable.
