E is for Environmental

The “E” in ESG stands for Environmental. Environmental reflects how a company or debt issuer manages its impact on the environment and associated risks. Issues such as resource use, effect of operations, waste management, supply chain efficiency, are all evaluated.

Examples of “environmental” red flags are climate change, water stress, deforestation, plastics, and marine pollution. Many clients want to ensure that their assets are positioned as effectively as possible to limit the potential environmental damage caused by investing in companies with a poor environmental track record. For this reason, we offer complimentary carbon intensity analysis for prospective client portfolios, to determine how effectively current assets are meeting the challenge of climate change
