One of the things that Sustainalytics is very involved
in is it's trying to bring new ideas into the market and try to create dialog
and debate and discussion in regards to how environmental social
governance issues can influence investment decision makings and we try
to think outside of the box a little bit. Another thing that Sustainalytics
likes to do is partner with other groups and organizations that may have a
slightly different approach to the issues than we do. So Sustainalytics has
partnered with Oddo securities which is a Paris headquartered, traditional
sale side brokerage shop and we have looked at the issue of transportation
and mobility across a range of sectors, rail, marine, air travel to examine
I think in an innovative way how issues like climate change and other
environmental and social issues are going to impact those industries
broadly speaking. And of course, what we found is certain sectors can
benefit from some of the sustainability driven changes we are seeing in the
world, others are facing risks in that regard and then within those sectors,
you see companies who understand the opportunities or not. And I think
for investors every investor is trying to get an edge and at the end of the
day, as an investor, don't you want to know everything you possibly can
about a company? That's really the game. There is always going to be a
risk in investing in a company but you are always hoping for a return that is
commensurate with that risk. But we always think that risk return equation
is best calculated when you know as much as you possibly can about
the company in the first place. And so we are just providing new angles,
new ways of looking at companies, new ways of looking at sectors that
traditional analysts don't obviously think about and that's the sort of value
add that a company like Sustainalytics adds into the equation and it's why I
think environmental and social governance issues are becoming a lot more
mainstream certainly a lot more so than they were five or 10 years ago.
