Sustainable
Investment

Service overview

Financial divestment has long been a powerful tool for social change, and climate change is no exception. Recent years have seen a sharply growing number of investors shift their portfolios away from companies that rely heavily on fossil fuels and toward businesses that demonstrate a commitment to environmentally sustainable practices. Green bonds, for example, are heavily oversubscribed in several market segments.With this development comes a growing number of options, not all of them compelling ones, for investors concerned about the environment. Where should you put your money? What does sustainable investment entail? We can help.

With its strong analytical competence, and two decades of experience with project assessment and implementation, Perspectives can support you in comprehensively assessing the environmental and social benefits (and risks) of your investment opportunities, allowing you to build a deeply informed investment strategy that sacrifices neither environmental responsibility nor financial performance.
