Environmentally and Socially Responsible Investing
What is ESG Investing?
Investors around the world are increasingly conscious of how business practices may impact the environment and, in turn, future generations. Aligning your investments with your values can be a powerful driver for investors to help promote environmental sustainability and to fight climate change with their dollars. Thayer Financial has created portfolios that will allow clients to align sustainability values and investment goals without sacrificing diversification or expected returns.
As citizens, individuals can express their political preferences around sustainability through the ballot box. As investors, they also can express their preferences through participation in global capital markets.
ESG Investing (Environmental, Social, and Governance) is a fast-growing investment movement that helps shape the capital markets by using investment dollars and shareholder voting rights to steer the directions of publicly traded companies. By providing more weight to companies that are good stewards of the environment and underweighting or eliminating greater polluters, investors can have a real say in the direction and decisions of how decisions are made at the corporate level.
