Sustainable Investing for the Long Term Generation's investment approach is based on the idea that sustainability factorseconomic, environmental, social and governance criteriawill drive a company's returns over the long term. By integrating sustainability issues with traditional analysis, we aim to deliver superior investment returns About Us | Generation Investment Management LLP David Blood: Sustainability investing is the explicit recognition that social, economic, environmental, and ethical factors directly affect business strategyfor example, how companies attract and retain employees, how they manage the risks and create opportunities from climate change, a companys culture, corporate-governance standards, stakeholder-engagement strategies, philanthropy, reputation, and brand management. These factors are particularly important today given the widening of societal expectations of corporate responsibility A little food for thought here, while climate change is an issue that many debate here and elsewhere, the ones that are beating the drums the loudest are also the ones that seem to be the one's that will profit most from this so called change.
