Sustainable investing has captured the attention of institutional investors worldwide, but the scope of sustainable investing is broader than some investors might imagine.

Sustainable investing goes beyond incorporating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors to pursue better risk-adjusted returns. It’s also about addressing our world’s challenges by being responsible owners and stewards of assets, accountable citizens in our communities, and partners with like-minded organizations in quest of a more sustainable future (Figure 1).

These ambitions are compatible.

FIGURE 1: SCOPE OF SUSTAINABLE INVESTING

ESG Investments

A large part of sustainability investing is the consideration of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in an investment process. Considering ESG factors is not necessarily about making value judgments, ethical imperatives, or normative claims. Because ESG integration offers the potential for better risk management, it can benefit every portfolio. In other words, as institutional investors, it’s our fiduciary responsibility to understand the relevance of sustainability over long-term investing horizons.

Active Ownership/Stewardship

A critical component of a fiduciary’s responsibility is to try to influence corporate behavior through investment ownership or stewardship. For sustainability-minded fiduciaries, that means engaging with companies who fail to meet responsible business conduct standards, face credible allegations of poor practices, or lack transparency in their ESG risk mitigation efforts. And, if necessary, influence their operations through proxy voting.

Corporate Responsibility

Beyond investment management operations, any sustainability effort should include your organization’s responsibility to improve its own social and environmental impact. This means contributing to the well-being of your communities, including direct financial gifts and volunteering, job training for disenfranchised groups, commitment to diversity and inclusion programs, and reducing the organization’s environmental footprint.

Global Cooperation

Our world is more interconnected than ever. We can only strengthen the implementation of sustainability efforts by working with others. Partnerships between governments, the private sector, and our communities are essential to support sustainable investing objectives and are built upon shared principles, vision, and goals. Examples of such partnerships in our industry include the Principles for Responsible Investing (PRI), the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), and Climate Action 100+.

Sustainable Investing Framework

Collectively, ESG investments, active ownership/stewardship, corporate responsibility, and global cooperation offer a framework for successful sustainable investing – beyond responsible investments. As an example, Intech has embraced this framework to build its sustainable investing approach (Figure 2). While Intech has been a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment since 2012, we believe this framework reflects a broader commitment to UN Sustainable Development Goals, which is a blueprint for a more sustainable future for everyone.
