Calvert Investments

Type: Investor

Country: United States

Date of signing: 20 February 2012

“With over thirty years of sustainable investing experience, Calvert has a depth of experience in assessing the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risk and opportunity in the evaluation of companies for investment.  Yet while many elements of ESG analysis are now transparent, investors are still largely unable to account for potential risks from biodiversity loss or quantify how companies have benefitted from healthy ecosystems.  Investors will require greater transparency from corporations as resource constraints sharpen.  We welcome the opportunity afforded by the Natural Capital Declaration to explore the integration of biodiversity and financial analysis as an industry and to collaborate with other investors to provide clear direction to our collective portfolio holdings.  In many ways the natural world is priceless, and yet we must recognize the value we all derive from it while considering the interests of those most dependent upon its survival.”
