A recent report from Institutional Shareholder Services ESG solutions compiled key trends for 2024 concerning sustainable investing.

The report examined the intersection between alternatives and environmental, social, and governance investing. It noted that with volatility, inflation, interest rates, and geopolitical risks, alts provide investors “with an idiosyncratic opportunity to generate alpha and to actively consider the net zero transition,” referring to reducing carbon emissions to offset what the issuer releases.

Also according to the report, with the continuing need and demand for interoperability and harmonization across regulatory frameworks and asset classes, investors in alts can actively direct long-term capital toward a broad range of ESG-related projects, such as low-carbon infrastructure, retrofitting real estate, transport electrification, natural capital preservation, and others.
