Read our sustainability and impact report
In this inaugural assessment, the Sustainable Investing team provides multidimensional views of our portfolios’ sustainability metrics and social and environmental impact, including examples of portfolio holdings.
Dive into key metrics from our impact report
Portfolio ESG rankings vs. peers
Many investors want to see a snapshot view that shows a portfolio’s aggregate ESG ratings or rankings, and many value the independence of an assessment that is based on third-party data.
Carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases (GHG) trap thermal radiation from the earth’s surface, sustaining natural life.
Women on boards of directors
Our portfolios do have a higher-than-market representation of companies where women comprise 30% or more of total board membership.
