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.

This virtual event is for professional investors.
Jenn-Hui Tan talks through how Fidelity integrates ESG considerations through our investment process and the importance of Fidelity's proprietary sustainability ratings. Listen to how we assess, not just what the company is today, but what we think the company will be in the future.
Jenn-Hui Tan discusses Fidelity’s two types of engagements. One is specialised engagements. These are engagements that are powered by the ratings that we've constructed. The second is a thematic approach to engagement.
Bertrand Lecourt introduces our unique Water and Waste Fund and the opportunity to invest for good. He explores the theme in detail and discusses his investment philosophy and process for the Fund.
