ESG Investing

Downtown Denver

 

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)

More than ever before, investors are looking for companies whose business practices reflect positive environmental and social change.

 

How We Can Help 

Taking a comprehensive approach to the investment selection process, we focus on helping you align your investments with your beliefs. 

Rather than focusing on simply excluding certain companies on the basis of moral standards or social norms, we focus on including companies by evaluating three central factors:  environmental and social impact, and corporate governance (ESG).

Examples of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors are numerous and ever-shifting. They include:
 

Environmental 

  • Climate change
  • Greenhouse gas emissions
  • Resource depletion, including water
  • Waste and pollution
  • Deforestation
     

Social

  • Working conditions, including slavery and child labor
  • Local communities, including indigenous communities
  • Conflict
  • Health and safety
  • Employee relations and diversity
     

Governance 

  • Executive pay
  • Bribery and corruption
  • Political lobbying and donations
  • Board diversity and structure
  • Tax strategy
