Impact Report, Q2 2021

Any strategy looking to reduce carbon emissions needs to take sustainable energy production into account. With global demand for electricity set to double by 2050, there is an urgent need to shift from unsustainable fossil fuels to renewables like wind and solar power.

In the latest Impact Quarterly Report, we delve into Energy Transition as a theme that goes beyond energy production. We argue that in thinking about sustainable energy, we must consider energy wastage and, by the same token energy efficiency. 

Other highlights in this edition include:

  • Our exposure by impact theme : We share how our portfolio breaks down across nine impact themes, as aligned to the Un Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  • Case studies: We provide case studies for two portfolio companies. They include company-specific highlights from our impact measurement tools.
