We are pleased to announce that we have won the award for Most Innovative ESG Product for the Earth Dividend™ at this year’s ESG Investing Awards.

Our co-founder and Chief Executive, Gordon Power, said: “This award recognises the importance of an effective and transparent approach to measuring the impact of investments. We hope that the Earth Dividend™ will continue to spearhead the industry towards more meaningful sustainable investment that has a genuine impact.”
Our Chief Sustainability Officer, Richard Burrett, said: “We are delighted to win the award for the Most Innovative ESG Product. We believe that deeper ESG integration is critical across the whole investment cycle. Our Earth Dividend™ tool enhances our due diligence, investee performance management and reporting; adding value across the investment process.”
