Investing for the environment

Environment

The link between your savings and the environment may not be obvious, yet a sustainable and responsible investment can directly contribute to environmental protection by aiding companies active in this field and still be a profitable way to save.

The environment: now an imperative

Environmental protection is no longer just a priority: it has become imperative.

Environmental protection covers several areas. For example:

  • mitigating climate change
  • optimising energy resources
  • waste management and recycling
  • pollution control
  • water treatment
  • sustainable agriculture

World population growth and the overall increase in living standards make this challenge even more pressing and suggest that industries in the environment sector will enjoy exceptional growth over the long term.

‘Doing better with less’ – a challenge already met by many industries

The search for cleaner sources of energy and the development of more environmentally efficient technologies are requirements in many areas of industry, such as transport, real estate, electronics, packaging, farming and water.

In our view, the companies involved in designing new technologies that boost environmental protection should benefit from significant investment over the next twenty years.
