The Impax Sustainability Centre acts as our centre of excellence providing knowledge, tools and expertise on investing in the transition to a more sustainable economy to Impax and our clients. This allows Impax to meet the growing expectations of clients, regulators and other stakeholders. It also enables us to maintain our strong position in dealing with the rapidly expanding range and depth of sustainability issues.

The Impax Sustainability Centre is led by Co-Heads Lisa Beauvilain (Global Head of Sustainability & Stewardship) and Chris Dodwe­­­ll (Global Head of Policy & Advocacy) who share management responsibilities and report directly into Impax’s Chief Executive, Ian Simm.

The Impax Sustainability Centre has four key areas of focus, as outlined below.

* Environmental, Social and Governance

Investment sustainability & stewardship

Sustainability is fully integrated within Impax’s investment process. The Impax Sustainability Centre provides leadership, advice and oversight of investment-related sustainability research, thematic and sustainable universe development, impact measurement, development of proprietary tools and methodologies, management of the fundamental and Systematic ESG analysis and processes, and stewardship work including proxy voting and company-specific and thematic engagement, as well as policy insights for the investment process.

Advocacy & outreach

We aim to support policy makers who are working to create enabling environments that will accelerate the transition to a more sustainable economy. We are active across a range of channels, from traditional reactive approaches such as working through industry associations, responding to consultations, and participating in issue-specific initiatives and sign-on letters – to more innovative pro-active interventions such as publishing Impax’s perspectives and commentaries, funding research, piloting new approaches, partnering with clients, and bilateral discussions with policy makers. Impax’s efforts around “systematic stewardship” fall under this area of focus. Systematic stewardship combines company thematic engagement and policy advocacy as levers for accelerated change. 

Thought leadership

Impax’s thought leadership and insights supports our investment process, as well as our clients and the industry at large. The Impax Sustainability Centre’s thought leadership provides Impax’s house view on important and evolving topics, supports research partnerships with academia and clients, and provides Impax’s firm-wide sustainability training and development. 

Sustainability client advisory & reporting

The Impax Sustainability Centre also advises on sustainability in Impax’s product development, sustainable finance regulatory responses and reporting including the metrics and methodologies used to create Impax’s firm wide and client specific sustainability reporting. The Sustainability Centre also develops Impax’s firm-wide sustainability policies and is responsible for providing sustainability reporting expertise and insights to Impax’s clients.
