Two Decades of Climate Leadership

Boston Common’s History of Decarbonizing Portfolios

Boston Common Asset Management has long been a leading investor voice on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues. Well before climate change became a common concern, we began avoiding investments in the worst contributors to climate change and choosing instead to invest in companies focused on renewable energy, climate change mitigation and adaptation, process efficiency, and economic circularity. We engaged companies directly and collaboratively to improve operations, reduce GHG emissions, and increase efficiency, and over time adapted our approach, applying innovative tactics such as pushing banks to address climate risk in their financing, lending, and investment operations.
