Delivering real world positive impact alongside financial returns

Sustainable development requires a vast amount of funding per annum, of which there is currently a shortfall. An estimated $2.1 trillion is needed to achieve the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals in emerging market economies by 2030 in the areas of education, health, electricity, roads, water & sanitation, for instance. To achieve net zero emissions by 2050 requires approximately $4 trillion in clean energy transition-related investment per year. Impact Investing, by mobilising capital towards projects that address these societal challenges, bridges this gap and avails a credible means to advancing a sustainable future in a just and inclusive way.

Making an impact on sustainability

The fund aims to invest in fixed income instruments with demonstrable positive environmental and social impact, while delivering competitive financial returns.

Performance with Principles

EdenTree is the original responsible investment house having launched one of the first ethical equity funds in the UK back in March 1988. For us, responsible investment is not just a fad, but a long-term dedication to performance with principles. 
Investors increasingly want their investment portfolios to make a difference and have a positive impact on society and the environment around them.

At EdenTree we applaud this alignment of investment with values. After all, as pioneers in responsible and sustainable investing, our strategy for over 30 years has been to invest for the long-term to create a better world for tomorrow.
