Fidelity On Air – Investing for good, investing for sustainability

Bertrand Lecourt, Saurabh Sharma, Jenn-Hui Tan

There is no economy without water, and no sustainable economy without water and waste management.
With a growing world population, improving water and waste management is becoming a vital issue for governments and businesses to address. As standards of living surge and drive consumption, these rapidly evolving industries have the potential to make a significant impact on public health, economic prosperity and environmental protection.

Fidelity’s recently launched Sustainable Water and Waste Fund gives investors the opportunity to harness growth in demand for these services and contribute to their capacity for sustainable resource management for the benefit of both people and the planet. 

Join us for our upcoming Fidelity On Air event, where will explore these sustainability issues and Fidelity’s approach to sustainable investing with Jenn Hui Tan, Fidelity’s Global Head of Stewardship and Sustainability and Investment Director, Saurabh Sharma. Then take a deep dive into our first Sustainable Fund in Australia with our experienced Portfolio Manager, Bertrand Lecourt.
