Impax Asset Management is a fundamentally-driven, active shareholder with a long investment horizon and we seek to build long-term relationships with our investee companies. Our investment process is focused on thoroughly understanding the character and quality of our companies, including environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues material to their business, and the areas of potential improvement. We believe it is in our investors’ interest that we engage with our investee companies, to seek to minimise risks, protect and enhance shareholder value, promote greater transparency on ESG issues, and encourage companies to develop and become more resilient over time.
