Welcome to Impact @ Impax 2020. This is the sixth annual publication we have produced that discloses the quantified environmental benefits linked to our clients’ investments in our portfolio companies.
At Impax, every strategy is designed to intentionally allocate clients’ capital towards those companies we expect to flourish as the global economy transitions to a more sustainable model, and to reduce or eliminate exposure to potential losers from that transition. This impact report provides post-investment evidence of this intentionality.
As in previous years, this report discloses impacts covering carbon emissions avoided, renewable energy generated, water treated, saved or provided, materials recovered and waste treated, and coal use displaced in Asian cities. This year, we have expanded the strategies on which we report to include the Sustainable Food and Water strategies. We have also included net carbon metrics for the Global Opportunities portfolio and mapped it against the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the first time.
