Our impact story
It began in 1986 when our founders set out to invest for a better world by using money as a force for good. It's an investment philosophy that remains unchanged, in an ever-changing world.
The carbon intensity of our portfolio continues to decline, whilst our investment in renewable power generation powers on. Since 2000, we have donated more than $6 million to our Foundation, driving positive outcomes for the planet, people and animals.
