Sustainability, an edge for alpha generation and risk management
Socially responsible investing has been at the core of Carmignac Emergents’ philosophy for several years now:
We target companies that make a positive contribution to society or the planet, by bringing solutions to environmental and social challenges within emerging countries.
We favour companies that have a low carbon footprint or show strong commitment to reducing their negative environmental impacts5.
We actively engage with companies before the initial investment, during the holding period, if/when controversies occur and through shareholder voting6.
We have broadened the list of exclusions (on top of firm wide exclusions) based on the Fund’s philosophy, process and Fund Managers’ convictions.
