Investment choices

Strategic options

Investors, company executives and others who are looking to pay greater attention to the ESG issues and risks can take several points of view.

Taking the investor lens to illustrate, we note that investors have five strategic options: Minimalist, Exclusion, Passive Selection, Active Selection and Impact Investment.

ESG Validation LLP is able to advise and assist investors to develop ESG strategies in all areas; ensuring that the adopted approach is robust in the face of scrutiny, that investments are consistent with the strategy, and that the overall strategy is coherent and evidence-based. We do not offer investment advice, but rather, advice related to the robustness of ESG claims which can, and should, inform investment decisions.

ESG Validation, a London-based firm, aims to address a major gap in the current architecture of global capital markets that will be critical in advancing ESG-aligned business leadership and investment management: the presence of a trusted, neutral, and competent authority to provide a view on the ESG claims, measures and practices of corporates and companies around the globe.
