At Impax, the investment strategies we manage are designed to intentionally allocate clients’ capital towards those companies we expect to benefit as the global economy transitions to a more sustainable model. Our impact reporting shows how this intention is translated into action.

Measuring the GHG emissions and avoided emissions of the companies within Impax portfolios helps us to demonstrate their contribution to the transition to a lower-carbon economy. We believe comparison with real-world comparators, including estimates of the greenhouse gas emissions intensity of the global economy under scenarios compatible with limiting temperature rise to 1.5°C and 2°C, helps to providing context and challenge.

We continue to develop our impact reporting approach through our own research and in response to feedback from our stakeholders. For each investment strategy, we consider its specific investment objectives when identifying the most relevant impact metrics to measure and report on. We have continued to expand our reporting to include additional strategies and metrics, including for social impact as well as for environmental impact.

We also map Impax’s strategies to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to indicate their level of alignment with this framework. We do so by identifying the proportion of portfolio companies’ revenues related to activities described by the targets within each Goal. The nature of Impax’s investment philosophy results in some meaningful exposure to the SDGs as a by-product of the investment process.
