Investors in change
The performance of our investments contradicts the myth that returns are affected when investing sustainably. Evidence indicates that investing in a sustainable way improves profitability or does not hurt it.
Sustainability is a global force increasingly influencing everyday decisions. Very soon, sustainable investing will be considered simply "investment."
