Investors are placing increased emphasis on new methods of capital allocation which help to achieve their desired social, environmental and financial objectives. They are targeting investments that not only facilitate economic growth in countries around the world, but also consider non-financial factors - from cleaner environments to safer products and better employment practices. At the same time, there is considerable evidence that if companies adhere to ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) standards, they will outperform companies who do not.
But how do investors go about investing based on ESG criteria? This new book, written by investment guru Mark Mobius and his expert team, is full of entertaining and informative anecdotes from the authors' day-to-day experiences in the world of sustainable investment.
Readers will gain a clearer understanding of what sustainable investment actually means, the positive effects it can have on businesses and societies and what to look for in order to identify sound and sustainable investment opportunities.
