Emerging Markets Sustainable Impact
2021 Impact Report
At American Century, we see no conflict between having an impact and generating attractive investment returns. We have observed that companies committed to sustainable business practices are often better at responding to risks and new opportunities, more efficient and foster greater loyalty among stakeholders.
The Emerging Markets Sustainable Impact Report highlights the impact theses of several companies we believe illustrate this process and demonstrates how they contribute to five main impact themes:
Allowing individuals to live a satisfying, productive life
Providing access to human rights, fair and safe labor, education and financial security
Shaping the future of living in harmony with the environment
Protecting and supporting the environment
Harnessing technological innovation to improve quality of life
We believe ESG investing is crucial to achieving the fundamental changes embodied in the U.N. SDGs, changes that are needed for a healthier, more equitable and sustainable future. This portfolio offers the opportunity to support efforts to achieve these goals by investing in firms we believe can generate a financial return and drive positive change.
