Sustainability Research

Covalis seeks to invest in companies that are well-positioned to benefit from the transition to a low-carbon, more sustainable, decarbonized and electrified economy.

Covalis believes that holistic and data-driven sustainability considerations can be used as indicators of quality and profitability, as well as catalysts and risk predictors. Covalis’ ESG Committee and dedicated resources incorporate proprietary sustainability research into the investment process as part of Covalis’ fundamental approach to investments.


Constructive engagements are used to enhance issuers’ sustainability capabilities, encourage issuers on material ESG regulation and disclosure and address material controversies.

The team believes that monitoring issuers’ ESG targets and commitments as well as climate and governance risks is key to capital preservation and alpha generation. Sustainability considerations are also part of Covalis’ proxy voting decisions.
