Ecofin Strives to Make a Positive Impact Without Compromising Returns
by Brent Newcomb, President of Ecofin
Ecofin is a sustainable investing specialist dedicated to climate action, social impact and water.
First, climate action is the drive to reduce emissions, and includes both the energy transition and waste transition. This means conventional categories such as solar, wind, hydro and batteries, in addition to the electrification of transport, energy efficiency, waste-to-value (recycling) and waste-to-energy (cleaner fuels such as renewable natural gas).
Second, our investments in social impact focus on providing access to quality education, particularly the underserved population, as well as affordable housing and equal access to healthcare and sustainable communities.
Third, our water investments endeavor to help provide access to clean water and improve water scarcity and sanitation.
Across all themes, we focus on companies and assets that we believe provide investors with the opportunity to compound wealth and preserve capital, while providing a social good.
Why We Do It - Some of the world’s most pressing challenges have been given newfound attention. The devotion to these issues is the bedrock of the Sustainability Revolution. These are long-term secular themes and structural changes occurring on a global scale. We believe we are in the early stages of a multi-decade tectonic shift. The consequences of these changes are shifts in how we make basic decisions, how we consume resources and how we live on the planet. The shift in behavior is also re-shaping the investment landscape.
