Discover the principles Calvert relies on to create long-term shareholder value and improve societal outcomes.

An Approach Based on Materiality

To assess how well a company is positioned to respond to various Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) challenges or capitalize on opportunities, our team draws on expertise in specific economic sectors and data from diverse sources to determine which specific factors may drive corporate performance in any given industry.

Influence That Makes an Impact

A critical element of our approach is actively engaging with companies and broader investor coalitions and industry groups to drive greater accountability and action. By helping companies understand the potential financial benefits of responsible practices, we can help affect meaningful change.
