Terra Alpha’s science-based approach to sustainable investing places the decarbonization of the global economy at the center of our investment and impact work (see Investing Beyond Fossil Fuels). We see this as both essential for our planet’s future and prudent for our investors. Every company that we consider for inclusion in our funds is assessed on its plans to meet the global climate goals set by the Paris Agreement. Over 70% of the companies in our funds today have been approved for or have committed to setting Science-Based Targets for their GHG emissions.
Joining the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative is the natural step forward for Terra Alpha. Committing to the Net Zero initiative obliges us to set targets and methodologies for achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions in our funds and as a firm well before 2050. It also requires us to publish a TCFD disclosure, including a carbon action plan, annually. These actions are aligned with the commitments we have set for ourselves and with those we expect from our portfolio companies.
Terra Alpha’s vision is for a prosperous and truly sustainable world. We work towards this aim through our portfolios, our corporate engagement, our thought leadership, and via active collaboration. We are proud to join this initiative, alongside 72 other leading investment firms, to highlight our commitment to a better environment and a better world.
