Chapel Hill, NC – In 2008, Hamilton Point released its first Sustainability Report to assess and document the environmental impacts of the companies recommended in our Global Core Equity Strategy. For 2017, the report has been updated and expanded in order to provide a clearer picture of the environmental impact. At Hamilton Point, we believe that financial markets play an important role in shaping the economic, social and environmental landscape of tomorrow. As investment advisors, we must thoroughly consider these effects as we make responsible investment decisions. It should be made clear that Hamilton Point is not specifically oriented towards environmentally conscious investing. Our first and foremost priority is to serve the fiduciary needs of our clients; therefore, equity recommendations are made with the goal of maximizing returns while minimizing risk. Nevertheless, we feel that a company’s willingness to evaluate, innovate and streamline its operations in order to become more environmentally conscientious is a powerful indicator of its capacity to adapt and grow as a business, respond proactively to challenges and succeed in a competitive atmosphere.
