Profitable investment depends on the health of the physical environment as a source of wealth generation necessary for future prosperity
Natural resource depletion, climate change, and decreased access to fresh water are among those systemic environmental issues that threaten investors’ futures
Societies provide the foundational cultural and legal structures upon which businesses thrive
Income inequality, poverty, poor health, and dangerous working conditions – among other things – threaten societies’ health and the businesses that depend on it

This system and the investors that depend on it cannot thrive without stability, trust, credibility, inclusiveness, and transparency
