Research to identify a company’s positive benefit to society

Swiss bank UBS has linked with Harvard University and the City Uni­versity of New York on a 2 year research program to build a framework that measures the ­impact of global equities on climate change, water, food security and health. This research aims to create a landmark tool for the global pension fund industry to help them buy or sell shares in listed companies based on their environmental and social impact, hence their sustainability.
