The scientific and moral case for action on climate change is clear. Plenitude believes that responsible investing can help stall the momentum in environmental changes that we are seeing in society today.
Having spent time on the highest, driest, coldest continent on the planet we know that the effects of climate change in Antarctica can affect us all. Antarctica is home to approximately 90% of the world's ice including 70% of the world's fresh water. Depending on global greenhouse gas emissions levels, we are at risk of a rise in sea levels of 1 metre by 2100 just from the melting of the Antarctic ice sheet alone. There is no time to lose.
We have therefore developed an algorithm using Hedge Fund style analytics and Big Data to create an Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) framework that can offer responsible investing with superior risk-adjusted returns. This framework allows our customers to choose investments that are aligned with their values and shows that environmental responsibility can bring rewards.
