Global Impact



Why Invest in Global Impact?

The Global Sustainable Impact Portfolio invests in companies whose core business addresses at least one of the world’s social and environmental challenges, as defined by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. They must derive revenue from positively impacting one or more of these universal goals and maintain minimum ESG standards.



We look at each company’s energy use, waste, pollution, natural resource conservation, and animal treatment. We also evaluate which environmental risks might affect a company’s income and how the company is managing those risks.

Social Responsibility

We look at the company’s business relationships. Does it work with suppliers that hold the same values that the company itself claims to hold? Does the company donate a percentage of its profits to the community or perform volunteer work?

Leadership &


We look at a companies use of accurate and transparent accounting, common stockholders being able to vote on important issues, and conflicts of interest on the board.



The Global Impact Portfolio is compared to the S&P 500 over a 1-year timeframe.
