Many people mistakenly believe that sustainable investing doesn’t perform well.
But guess what…
There are now more than 2000 academic and industry research reports showing that sustainability practices are actually linked to good performance.
Importantly, more than two-thirds of professional investors reported that sustainable investing had “significantly improved their returns.”
Take a look at this real world comparison:
Here’s the performance of the sustainable stock index, KLD, compared to the S&P 500 index.
KLD, shown in green, was one of the first sustainable indexes. It includes 400 companies with high environmental, social and governance ratings.
It’s done well. As you can see, it’s performed a little better than the S&P 500 for the past 26 years ….and that’s hard to do.
Clearly, sustainable investing has the potential to do as well or better than ordinary investments.
That’s why so many people are turning to sustainable investing to help them build wealth and a better world.
