Sustainable Investment Report Q3 2021


Read Schroders’ Sustainable Investment Report Q3 2021 here.

A message from Schroders’ Head of Sustainability Strategy Hannah Simons:

Environmental impact and societal principles are the key reasons people want to invest sustainably. That is one of the key sustainability findings from Schroders’ 2021 Global Investor Study.

It is also evident from some of the most popular content we published this quarter. What is natural capital? What makes a company a climate leader? Why are heat pumps so important for the energy transition? These are just some of the questions investors want answered.

The appetite for information and action on climate change is, unsurprisingly, at an all-time high and we are expanding our engagement in this area.

We have deepened our commitment to transparency through the reporting we offer our clients, arguably the most important enabler of sustainable investment. Our active ownership themes for 2022 will be shared soon.
