Many Investing Approaches Under One Umbrella
Fidelity views sustainable investing as an umbrella term, covering several approaches, which include:
- Negative/Exclusionary Screening, screening out companies based on a set of values
- ESG Integration, analyzing corporate policies, statements, and reports with an eye toward mitigating risks and/or uncovering investment opportunities
- Thematic/Impact Investing, investing in companies with the intent of generating social and environmental impact alongside financial gain
Sustainable investing was once associated with excluding or screening investments based on certain criteria. Today, sustainable investing is about more than just excluding options based on your values. Cast a wider net for companies that manage risk and create business opportunities through this lens and you may find opportunities that could help you meet your long-term financial goals.
