By investing in this Impact Area, you are supporting companies tackling climate change by ensuring access to affordable clean energy. You are also steering away from companies polluting the atmosphere with energy from non-renewable sources. Think wind turbines, rooftop solar panels, hydroelectric plants, battery technology and smart-grid projects.
Why It Matters
- Renewable energy is expected to be the fastest-growing energy source, with annual consumption increasing by 2.3% annually between 2015 and 2040.
- Energy production is the largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions at 60%.
- World electricity demand will increase by almost 30% by 2040 and clean energy solutions are imperative to help meet this demand.
- Renewable energy is one of the most effective tools we have to fight climate change.
We evaluate companies based on how they are:
✔ Producing clean and renewable energy with a clearly net positive environmental impact
✔ Distributing products and services that facilitate clean and sustainable energy production
✔ Enabling reduced energy savings and consumption

Recap is a sustainable investing platform that enables you to easily and transparently invest only in the companies that share the same environmental and social vision as you.
Recap's performance is hypothetical and does not represent the investment performance or the actual accounts of any clients. The securities in the hypothetical portfolio were selected with the full benefit of hindsight, after their performance over the period shown was known. The results achieved in our simulations do not guarantee future investment results. The model performance information is based on the back-tested performance of hypothetical investments over the time periods indicated. “Back-testing” is a process of objectively simulating historical investment returns by applying a set of rules for buying and selling securities, and other assets, backward in time, testing those rules, and hypothetically investing in the securities and other assets that are chosen. Any comparisons to indices are provided for illustrative purposes only.
