The Association of the Luxembourg Funds Industry talks to David Harris, Director for Responsible Investment at the FTSE Group, London about Environmental Investing. David explains that a number of Pension funds believe we are going through an economic transition and that society is facing many challenges including, population growth and resource scarcity and increasing per capita which are propelling society into potentially dangerous consequences. David believes there are investment risks — but also opportunities, and he talks about a range of environmental solutions which will form new sectors of the economy. In reaction to this many institutional investors are mapping out their investments to understand where they’re invested in environmentally intense companies, and then looking to expand their exposure to these investments. A challenge to this, according to David, has been definitions. Without the definition, it’s hard to measure, which means you can’t understand the investment characteristics, which makes it very hard to invest. He talks about FTSE Group’s various sector classifications, which make it easier to understand the different investment characteristics of these sectors.
