While the market can’t seem to agree on a set definition for these themes, it is clear that the traditional model of excluding perceived unethical investments such as tobacco, pornography, arms etc. has broadened out into identifying businesses that make a positive impact through responsible investing and operations, while still making money. There are also increasing followers of an investment strategy that believes that businesses focussing on these positive environmental, social and governance factors, are likely to perform better than those who don’t in future, through brand strength, future proofing and controversy avoidance.
