Sustainable investing is an investment discipline that considers environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) criteria to generate long-term competitive financial returns and positive community impact.

Client Centered

Sustainable investing provides a mechanism for customers to align their personal values with their investment objectives and choose investment products that are meaningful to them.



The environmental component requires research into a variety of elements that illustrate a company's impact on the Earth, in both positive and negative ways. 

Evaluating a corporation's environmental record could include:

  • Climate change risk exposure
  • Carbon emissions and energy use
  • Water-related issues and goals such as usage, conservation, overfishing, and waste disposal
  • Pollution and waste
  • Environmental opportunities; clean tech


The social component consists of people-related elements like company culture and issues that impact employees, customers, consumers, and suppliers. 

Evaluating a corporation's social record could include:

  • Diversity and inclusion
  • Labor management
  • Product liability
  • Stakeholder opposition
  • Social opportunities in finance and healthcare


 The corporate governance component relates to the board of directors; how the business is run, and whether the corporate incentives align with the business's success.  

Evaluating a Governance history could include:

  • Business ethics and fraud
  • Ownership and the board
  • Compensation and accounting
  • Corruption and human rights
  • Anti-competitive practices

Environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) factors can impact the investment risk and return profiles of investments. Investing based on ESG factors may cause a strategy to take risks or forego exposures available to strategies or products that do not incorporate ESG factors, which could negatively impact performance. There is no assurance that investing based on ESG factors will be successful. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
