NEI Environmental Leaders Fund is a global equity solution that seeks to address the population, consumption and demand dynamics that pressure finite resources through resource optimization. The environmental markets of water, energy, waste and food & agriculture are the principal areas for investment.
Resource optimization is a leading response to the pressures and demands being put on limited resources. It seeks to extend the shelf life of resources beyond their conventional output and pivot to a more optimal and efficient framework that sustains global growth demands. The global risks of growing populations, urbanization, water scarcity and climate change also represent potential long-term drivers for investment. As a result, a new thematic investment opportunity set has emerged, capitalizing on companies seeking to address sustainability challenges in the areas of water, energy, waste and food & agriculture—known as environmental markets.
