Sustainable Investment Report Q4 2021


Read Schroders’ Sustainable Investment Report Q4 2021 here.

A message from Schroders’ Head of Sustainability Strategy Hannah Simons:

"Sustainability is really coming of age. Policymakers around the world are making sure that it does.

"As is clear from our outlook for sustainable investment, regulation is going to consume much of 2022 and there is still a long way to go, which is why monitoring the regulatory landscape keeps our team busy. The benefit, ultimately, should be disclosures that help end investors understand the sustainability of their portfolios.

"Keeping track of climate developments and how the climate crisis is evolving is also keeping us busy. Our Climate Progress Dashboard tracker consistently shows the world is far off meeting Paris Accord targets and the outcome of the COP26 climate summit was a bit of a mixed bag. Climate will remain one of our key engagement priorities as we go into 2022 but we also plan to ratchet up the S and the G in our active ownership strategy.

"Finally, if you have three minutes to spare, we recommend watching our latest MyStory video. This video series showcases the impact investments can have on society, and the latest one from Kazuhiro Toyoda on how a company has reinvented recycling in Japan is one of my favourites."
