What is SustainabilityHQ?

SustainabilityHQTM  is a subscription-based 24/7 Web platform that identifies, profiles, monitors and tracks the activities of key players in capital markets that are focused on ESG and Sustainability investing.  Investors seriously considering Key Performance Indicators for environmental and social issues, and corporate governance for their investment decision-making.  These key players are located in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Pacifica, and other regions.

There are also profiles, background and news for key institutional investors (asset owners and asset managers) embracing ESG and Sustainability investment policies and practices and shaping important capital market trends – including Sovereign Wealth Funds and affiliated institutions, and in the USA, public employee pension funds and retirement systems.  Tomorrow’s market winners, laggards and losers are being decided by these key investors embracing ESG/Sustainability.

Why is this important to you?

These powerful players in the capital markets (institutions and their leaders) are taking new approaches to investment decision-making and influencing corporate reputations, shaping stock valuations, and deciding financial outcomes for a wide range of public companies.  Subscribers use SustainabilityHQTM to identify players and trends and to understand more about the new normal of the capital markets and the growing influence and importance of key ESG market players, Sovereign Wealth Funds, and US public employee funds and their actions.

How can you use this resource?

If you are a corporate manager or board member, you should understand the critical shifts taking place in the markets as more investors and their advisors embrace ESG and Sustainability guidelines and investment policies.  Many of these players are now regularly questioning management on their policies and practices. SustainabilityHQTM will help prepare you for your meetings and discussions.

If you are an investor, or manage assets for institutions, SustainabilityHQTM will help you understand some of the critical trends now shaping investor outlook, and the new policies and practices and guidelines shaping institutional portfolios.  The intangible and non-financial metrics such as considered in ESG are now very tangible for investors, and are financial and material for a growing number of institutions.
