At the heart of our investment philosophy lies the search for resilient businesses set to thrive in the transition to a more sustainable economy. With the unprecedented market response to COVID-19 continuing to evolve, we believe this has only reinforced the imperative of such a transition.
We are pleased to present a recording of our recent webinar, where our experts discussed
- Investing in a post-COVID world inclusive of diversity, equity, and inclusion: Human capital management is viewed by Impax as a material risk. We recognize C19 exacerbated existing social inequalities and heighted opportunities to address causes.
- Impax connects with our investee companies to consider sharpening their strategies and risk management with an increased focus on low probability/high-impact risks. We encourage them to be mindful of the collective societal needs when working on policy inclusive of the financial outcome.
- Climate risk is no longer a distant problem: We are getting better at understanding financial impacts of climate risk and quantifying decision useful data. Our investment decisions incorporate physical risk, transition risks, corporate & policy response, and the financing of decarbonization.
- Emerging policy changes to guide Building Back Better: Our Head of Policy and Advocacy represents Impax in key areas joining Corporate and Policy Response. We are seeing policy makers bring in regulators to speed up the pace of change. We are encouraged by the cross-pollination with task forces between industry and regulatory sectors.
- Drivers powering the sustainable transition: We are taking informed actions to adjust exposures to opportunities and risks including structural changes and policy responses within the sustainable economy.
- Opportunities for managing money and sharing insights with clients: Impax has developed frameworks for long-term investing. This includes a broader framework to asses trends going on in the sustainable economy. The depletive economic model is changing facilitated by consumer demands, policy, and market structures.
