Key takeaways:

  • We explore how some of the world’s sustainability challenges create opportunity for businesses.
  • Take the built environment – a key contributor to carbon emissions meaning that buildings need become more sustainable. The drive to do so provides tailwinds to companies like Schneider Electric, a leader in energy management.
  • Sustainability themes encompass the likes of an ageing population and health challenges such as obesity. Companies that can help us address related issues look well-placed – take Novo Nordisk and its portfolio of treatments for diabetes for example.
  • We believe that investing with a sustainable mindset enables us to identify a host of high-quality cash generative businesses underpinned by long-term sectoral tailwinds.
