Sustainable investment solutions

Sustainable investment solutions

Sustainable investing can mean different things to different people. There is a wide range of dedicated sustainable investment solutions available to suit investors of all motivations and objectives.

Sustainable investing styles

At BlackRock, we distill client motivations into a spectrum from Avoid to Advance as a framework to think about different sustainable investing outcomes.

Sustainable investing avoidance

'Avoid' is about minimising or eliminating exposure to certain companies or sectors associated with negative ESG characteristics that could pose reputational or other related risks, or which violate the asset owner’s values.

Sustainable investing advancement

'Advance' is about increasing or targeting exposure to positive ESG characteristics. This might include using ESG scores as an additional layer in portfolio/index construction or focusing on a specific social or environmental theme or outcome.

Sustainable, or ESG-focused, strategies carry risks like any other investments, yet we see encouraging evidence that investors can make their portfolios more sustainable while pursuing traditional financial goals.
