Approach 

Impax believes capital markets will be shaped profoundly by global sustainability challenges, particularly climate change, environmental pollution, natural resource constraints, demographic and human capital issues such as diversity, inclusion and gender equity.

These trends will drive growth for well-positioned companies and create risks for those unable or unwilling to adapt.

Fundamental analysis which incorporates long-term risks, including environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, enhances investment decisions. 

Impax invests in companies and assets that are well positioned to benefit from the shift to a more sustainable global economy. They seek higher quality companies with strong business models and governance that demonstrate sound management of risk.
