As leaders in Responsible Investing, we understand that complex risk and opportunity assessments requires deeper, more comprehensive research and analysis.
For example, because competition for limited water supplies can increase food scarcity, regional conflict, sanitation issues and hamper economic growth, water access and water quality are near- and longer-term risks that Calvert prioritizes in both our investment research and investment philosophy.

That’s why our investment models include scoring for the material Environmental, Social and Governance factors within a given industry. In Pharma, for example, that includes product safety and ethical management because, as we’re seeing in the case of opioid manufacturers, low performance in these areas can unfortunately lead to disastrous results.

As leaders in Responsible Investing and ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance), we understand that making complex risk and opportunity assessments requires deeper, more comprehensive research and analysis.
For example, going beyond traditional fundamentals to understand and evaluate every aspect of a company’s supply chain gives us a stronger foundation for making informed investment decisions. And by modeling investments based on which specific ESG factors are most material to a company’s financial performance, we’re able to focus our engagement efforts to maximize impact.

For example, while solar and wind power are what most people think of for providing emissions-free electricity at scale, certain nuclear power projects can play a key role in low-carbon investment portfolios. By looking beyond the surface and analyzing areas that others may not consider, Calvert finds opportunities for investment and engagement that others may overlook.

For example, if we only looked at the fundamentals, we might not grasp just how substantially a governance issue like Gender Diversity at the executive level correlates to financial performance.
