Sustainability at Genève Invest
Investing in sustainable investments is often associated with ESG criteria. These three letters stand for “Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance”, which can be translated as environmental and climate protection, social and human rights, and corporate management.
When it comes to environmental and climate protection, dealing efficiently and sparingly with resources, emissions, innovations, and nuclear energy is a key factor in protecting our planet’s natural resources. As far as social and human rights are concerned, the treatment of employees and respect for human rights, ethnic groups, diversity, consumer protection, animal welfare and responsibility for one’s own products are essential aspects that should be taken into account for all social impacts of the company’s activities. Human dignity should always be respected, and good conditions should prevail for all. Relevant to corporate governance are the conduct and compensation of company management, management structures, and conduct toward owners. Ethical principles should be characterized above all by transparency and fairness, both towards the public and within the company.
At Genève Invest, we have integrated sustainability issues into our own activities and corporate culture to provide excellent long-term services to our clients.
The Genève Invest Company
Genève Invest is convinced that sustainability is a crucial issue of our time and will influence events on a global level in the future. For this reason, we support the global shift towards a sustainable, climate-neutral, and socially responsible economy. Ecological, social, and corporate aspects are taken into account in fundamental analyses. Our focus is on investments offering long-term added value and not on speculative engagements promising short-term profit at high risk.
Individual asset management based on single securities allows us to take into account the specific preferences of our clients. We avoid investing in companies associated with weapons, human and labour rights abuses, corruption and bribery, nuclear energy, tobacco and alcohol. Clients can make detailed requests to our asset management team.
Sustainable investment criteria are taken into account when evaluating investment decisions. Our analysis and documentation processes are not yet set up in such a comprehensive way that we promote investments that take ESG and sustainability criteria into account. In our opinion, an independent and objective database is still lacking, which would enable a reliable classification of companies and prevent greenwashing. Our stated goal is to be able to offer investments and products that comply with Article 8 of the Disclosure Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2019/2088) in the future.
