Pictet pledges to offer clients a wide range of high-quality sustainable investment products.
Since 1997, the Bank has developed two forms of sustainable investments.
- We first built a growing reputation in SRI core equity portfolios (best-in-class) for all major markets, aimed at meeting investors' sustainability objectives while delivering superior risk-adjusted returns.
- We then took a thematic approach, focusing on environmental themes or sectors that are key to the concept of sustainability.
There are many definitions of sustainable development, but the most widely accepted and cited definition appeared in the 1987 UN report released by the World Commission on Environment and Development, Our Common Future, also known as the Brundtland Report.
In line with Brundtland, Pictet defines sustainability as economic activity that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Our investment approach therefore aims to meet our clients' financial objectives and their concerns about social, environmental and governance issues.
