Ninety One strives for sustainability with substance
July 8, 2021 /3BL Media/ - Ninety One, an active global investment manager, is proud to announce that it has joined the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative, which supports investing aligned with the global goal of net zero emissions by 2050 or sooner.
