Equitorial, H1 2022: Investing in a net zero future

As professionals, as voters and as private citizens, we are all responsible for helping to ensure a sustainable future. However, as investors we have a duty to align that role with another, equally important responsibility: delivering strong returns for our clients. To do that, it’s vital we, the Global Equities team, analyse and measure both how climate change risk can negatively affect investments and how the shift to a low carbon economy creates valuable investment opportunities. Armed with that information, we are then able to maximise returns for clients while managing and addressing potential climate impact effectively.
