In recent years, there has been a growing emphasis on the impact criteria.
Companies are now expected to not only generate financial returns but also to create positive outcomes for society and the planet.
Investing in the technologies of the future is a priori the right strategy, although there is a high margin of error associated with major technological changes.
The real problem for the third decade of the 21st century is to direct cash towards these new projects as quickly as possible.
The more a technology allows for a mode of operation that is low in energy and greenhouse gas emissions, the more it is destined to become universal on all continents, and the more its value can skyrocket without any immediate profitability being associated with it.
The great principle of periods of innovation is a general upheaval in the representation of financial values.
This is when finance has invented one of the best stimulants, one of the best drivers of investment: the impact indicator.
How much is earned or not, what rate of return, all that which used to be the major criterion of valuation is considered secondary, and even accessory.
The clearer and more scientifically measured the impact indicator is, the more it becomes possible to communicate on this profitability.
The more investors are looking for the real impact, the more the valuation will increase, like in an auction.
One of the fundamental factors is therefore patience, the long term, the ability to wait for the impact indicators to prove their relevance.
It appears more and more that the calculation of wealth creation will have to be profoundly modified, depending on the positive and negative impact indicators
Clearly, non-financial information, qualitative data, is becoming the determining element for investors.
As soon as money is no longer the main criterion, but qualitative information takes precedence, it is necessary to have a platform by major category of information.
In response to this trend, we have developed an indice to assess companies' performance on Impact, Environmental, Social, and Governance criteria.
This indice is designed to provide investors with a comprehensive view of a company's Impact ESG and to help guide their investment decisions.
H&B Impact Indice (HBII), tracks the performance of companies that demonstrate strong Impact practices.
The HBII evaluates companies based on a range of criteria, including environmental management, labor practices, social issues, corporate governance, and owners engagement.
Companies are selected for inclusion in the indice based on their performance relative to their peers in their respective industries.
The selected companies are young businesses with immense potential for future growth and success.
Designing H&B Impact Indice
This indice was built by evaluating more than 10,000 companies from around the world, with a focus on Europe and particularly France.
This large sample size provides a broad and diverse range of companies to evaluate, allowing for a more comprehensive and accurate assessment of their performance.
To be included in the indice, each company had to meet a set of predefined criteria.
These criteria likely included factors such as Products Criteria, Environmental Criteria, Humanistic Criteria and Corporate responsibilities, among others.
Companies that did not meet these criteria would be excluded from the indice.
In addition to meeting the criteria, each company was also evaluated on their ability to transform and positively impact our world.
This likely includes factors such as innovation, impact on society, and contribution to sustainable development.
By evaluating companies on these broader criteria, the indice can identify potential leaders in their respective sectors who have the potential to make a positive impact on the world in the future.
Building an indice requires a significant amount of research, analysis, and evaluation.
These evaluations have been made by A.I., Algorithms and humans.
By including thousands of companies from around the world, the indice can provide a comprehensive view of the corporate landscape and identify potential leaders who are working to create a better future for all.
