Sustainable investing: Resilience amid uncertainty
The tremendous toll of the COVID-19 crisis – on health, economic well-being, and everyday activity – has precipitated a widespread reassessment of the way we live our lives. For governments, businesses, and investors, an essential question has been to understand the sources of resilience during these past few months and how to build on them to prepare for future crises.
Sustainability has been tested during the COVID-19 crisis and we believe it will be even more important in how we invest and how companies become successful. Sustainability issues become more salient going forward.
