SDG Engagement Equity commentary: Fortune Brands

The SDG Engagement Equity Fund focuses on attractive companies with the potential – through engagement aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – to generate outcomes that benefit people, the planet and investors. Here we demonstrate how we are engaging with current holding Fortune Brands to create positive impacts on the environment.

Within the SDG Engagement Equity capability, both attractive investment fundamentals and the potential for a constructive engagement programme are equal pre-requisites for investment. Fortune Brands, as a leading manufacturer of home plumbing needs, has the ability to support more water efficient practices within homes and in so doing avoids unnecessary water usage.
