"GS Global Environmental Impact Equity Portfolio – Driving Environmental Change."
The need for greater environmental sustainability is a global issue. 20 of the hottest years on record have occurred in the last 22 years and 8mn tons of plastic waste are hitting the ocean every year. However, current government policies fall short of limiting global warming to 1.5C by 2030, the goal of the Paris Agreement. Thus, the corporate sector must step up and companies providing solutions should benefit from long term demand tailwinds. By exclusively selecting companies aligned to such environmental themes, the GS Global Environmental Impact Equity Portfolio offers thoughtful exposure to a unique growth opportunity, while ensuring investors have greater impact with their capital. In other words, doing well, by doing good.
