Earth Day began more than three decades ago1 to raise awareness about environmental issues and the need to protect Earth against the harmful effects of water and air pollution in the pursuit of growth and prosperity. Back then, people were just starting to recognize that pollution was a threat to human health. The awareness grew over time, spreading across nations, leading to groups of like-minded individuals coming together to commemorate this special day annually in a bid to continue building awareness on reducing harmful activities and promote positive changes to protect our planet2.
Fast forward to today, while we continue to appreciate the wonders of staying on planet Earth on 22 April each year, it is even more important to take the opportunity to remind ourselves to continue addressing climate change – rising global temperatures associated with climate change poses risks to human health and the broader ecosystem. Everyone has a role to play, and your contribution can be more vital than you think.
Here at LGI, we believe that material environmental (as well as social and governance) factors impact the risks and returns of the investments we manage. Such considerations are integrated into our investment process (including engagement and voting activities) to optimise the risk-reward considerations of each investment decision we undertake on behalf of our clients. LGI has also introduced investments that promote a low-carbon economy, such as the Lion-OCBC Securities Singapore Low Carbon ETF.
