Sustainability has become a mainstream strategy among pension schemes and insurers. The days when investment decisions were swayed by how much money an asset could make are long gone.
Attitudes towards risk have changed, especially by investors with long-term horizons. The impact an asset has on the environment and our climate are more important as is equality and building strong community relations.
