Thematic investing

Investing in themes contributing to the development of sustainability.
Sustainability-themed investments contribute to addressing social or environmental challenges by investing in companies offering solutions to these issues. The most important issues tend to be population growth, rising wealth in the developing world, natural resource scarcity, energy security and climate change. This type of thematic investing particularly focuses on environmental themes, but can also cover social issues, such as health.
