Calvert Sustainable Climate Aligned Strategy

Strategy Team Logo

The Calvert Sustainable Climate Aligned Strategy is guided by Calvert’s Principles of Responsible Investing. It seeks to identify companies Calvert considers climate aligned in areas that are material to the long-term performance of a company.

Investment Approach

Calvert believes in the power of using data to overcome behavioural tendencies and drive positive change. In our view, analysing the factors that drive global change can reveal market dislocations and investment opportunities. By marrying these insights with company-level analysis of financial and material non-financial factors, Calvert seeks to deliver superior investment strategies while supporting positive change for our planet and society.



Calvert is a pioneer in Responsible Investing with 40 years of leadership and innovation in the industry. We are driven by a dual mandate to provide competitive investment performance and opportunities for positive global change for our clients.

Calvert uses a principles-driven investment approach that bridges global norms of Environmental, Social and Governance responsibilities with the needs of return-seeking investors.

With a focus on catalyzing positive change, Calvert marries differentiated research into financially material ESG factors with an active engagement approach that seeks to influence companies and markets toward greater sustainability and effective governance.
