Since 2016, we've sought to quantify the underlying positive impact associated with the companies in WHEB’s investment portfolio.
Our Impact Calculator is a tool we’ve developed which illustrates the positive impact associated with a given amount of money invested in the WHEB Strategy.
This positive impact is ultimately generated by the end users of the products and services; the owner of the electric vehicle or the homeowner who buys renewable power. Our investors are aligned with these positive impacts by investing in the companies that manufacture these products1.
Our latest impact report underscores our clear intention to invest in companies that provide solutions to critical sustainability challenges, connecting our investors with a brighter, healthier future – for people and the planet.
In our impact reports, our research specialists set out the critical problems that our investments are helping to solve. We provide examples of the companies held in the strategy and how they contribute to these solutions as well as data on how well we're helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote more sustainable businesses.
UN Sustainable Development Goals
The SDGs send a powerful message to the investment community as to what the world’s governments consider as development priorities through to 2030.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) were agreed by the world’s governments under the auspices of the United Nations in 2015. The seventeen goals set out aspirational and demanding targets for the world to achieve by 2030.
WHEB's strategy addresses seven of the SDGs directly and the remaining 10 indirectly.

1 Investors in WHEB’s strategy are aligned with these positive impacts by investing in companies that form part of crucial supply chains that manufacture these products and provide these services. WHEB’s investments contribute to the attainment of the impact, however, are not solely responsible. The impact is therefore referred to as ‘associated’.
