Resource optimization as an investment concept is rooted in the growing realization that a finite planet cannot sustain infinite growth. Investing in environmental markets such as energy (renewable energy and energy efficiency), water (water infrastructure and technologies, pollution control) and waste (waste management and technologies, environmental support services) can offer investment opportunities that can help to diversify portfolios and manage risk.
The Pax World Global Environmental Markets Fund (PGRNX) pursues investment strategies in these areas. This interview with Bruce Jenkyn-Jones, portfolio manager at Impax Asset Management, sub-adviser to the Pax World Global Environmental Markets Fund, offers more insight into the resource optimization investment concept.
