Abstract

Responsible or sustainable investing is becoming an increasingly important theme across the world. More and more investors, whether they are institutions or individuals, are recognising that if they are investing for the long term, they need to invest in companies that have an equally long-term focus. There is a growing awareness that managing companies to the quarter or even half-year to meet short-term profit targets can be value-destructive in the longer term, and if an investor is putting money away for 30 or 40 years, three-monthly profits are not as relevant as sustainable profits over decades and through many market cycles.
