KBI Global Investors (KBIGI) is taking part in the newly launched 50 Sustainability & Climate Leaders campaign.
Unveiled on Bloomberg, the digital initiative aims to address sustainability issues in pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, financial services, telecommunications, and petrochemicals, in a positive way. It will promote sustainability projects that have continued throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
The campaign was scheduled to be launched at a New York Summit event this month and postponed to early 2021 in light of the pandemic, also features Aktia Asset Management, Amann Group, Archroma, Bombyx, Carmignac, Corticeira Amorim, Engel Austria GmbH, Ericsson, Groupe Rocher, Heidelberg Cement, Hero Group, John Deere, KBI Global Investors, MANN+HUMMEL, Mirabaud, Novartis, Prysmian Group, REHAU Group, VZ AG, SSI SCHÄFER; Statkraft, Suntory Holdings Limited, TIER and Wilo Group.
All the companies taking part are aligned to the UN’s 17 Sustainability Goals (SDGs), and the campaign will allow them to share ideas on ways of achieving greater sustainability using solutions that leverage the latest technology and leadership methods to maximise profit.
Commenting on the new development, Geoff Blake, global head of business development at KBIGI said: “We are delighted to be associated with this important initiative. It is wholly aligned with everything we are about here at KBI Global Investors. We are investing capital, on behalf of our clients, in companies whose core businesses are delivering solutions to address, mitigate and adapt to climate change. We firmly believe investment can and will make a positive difference to the planet, and the way we live and work today and into the future.”
