Sustainability considerations continue to affect markets and economies in new ways. We believe a focus on sustainability gives investors and the companies and issuers they invest in greater power to drive value and create strategic advantages.

Stewardship and ESG integration

We see material ESG issues as strategic business issues that may affect the long-term value of the assets in which we invest. When issuers improve on ESG areas that could affect investment outcomes, we believe our clients should benefit.

Climate leadership

Collaborations with leading climate-science organizations Woodwell Climate Research Center and the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change can inform our investment approaches and decision making. They also help support the Wellington Climate Leadership Coalition.

Insights

FAQs: Sustainable investing 

Stewardship investing is a sustainable investing strategy focused on companies with industry-leading or markedly improving ESG practices. This type of investing generally seeks companies with strong commitments to sustainability, social responsibility, and ethical governance as pathways to increasing returns on capital. Wellington formerly referred to this approach as “ESG forefront investing.”

Impact investing seeks to use investment capital to generate competitive financial returns alongside positive outcomes for large-scale social or environmental challenges. For example, impact investment opportunities can be found in areas such as affordable housing, health care, education, financial inclusion, and renewable energy.

Climate investing is an increasingly broad category that can include investments in companies and other issuers that are actively developing solutions that help society adapt to or mitigate the effects of climate change. Climate-aware investing can also include the avoidance or underweighting of issuers or industries that may be unprepared for or heavily exposed to climate-related risks. Climate investors may seek to engage in constructive dialogue with issuers to help them build awareness of (and reduce) their climate-risk exposure.

The focus of sustainable theme investing is to address sustainability challenges through a specific thematic lens in pursuit of value creation and/or risk management. These investors aim, first, to identify socially and environmentally positive themes underpinned by structural economic drivers, and second, to invest in the drivers or beneficiaries of those trends.
