3D Impact Strategy

A global equity investment strategy, 3D Impact focuses on investing exclusively in companies that develop sustainable solutions within their industries and seek to build long-term shareholder value.


We evaluate three dimensions of impact:

Our portfolios are designed to provide equity market exposure with impact through a proprietary grouping system that aligns investment research and trading at the intersection between the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and traditional economic sectors (GICS).

Products / Revenue
Behaviors / Supply Chain
Advocacy / Engagement

Investment Philosophy

We believe significant challenges equal significant opportunities.  Companies working to improve environmental health and social well-being can solve the world’s biggest challenges, with investors and regulators accelerating demand for their goods and services solidifies our belief that impact is not an “or”, it’s an “and”.

We believe in a virtuous cycle:

Companies working to solve the world’s biggest challenges, environmental health and social well-being, represent the biggest opportunities.

Setting Ourselves Apart with KPIs

We focus on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure alignment of realized outcomes.  KPIs quantify extra-financial performance, creating metrics for social and environmental behaviors.  The use of KPIs allows us to identify thesis risk by monitoring the alignment of investment and impact goals and better informs our engagement with management by directing supportive and insightful conversation.

Why KPIs?

of the greatest barriers within impact investing is how to express accountability that a company is making an impact. KPIs can quantify social and environmental impacts by creating unique datasets to launch analysis.  We evaluate these datasets through the following:

Portfolio level impact
Environmental and social “returns”
Peer comparisons
Best-in-class practices
Macro screening/idea generation

Risk Management Framework

Evaluating Risk Through Impact:

Relative performance within industry
Are companies deviating from expected behavior?
Performance relative to price target
Is a company tracking in the wrong direction?
Alignment with thesis
Is there measurable progress of KPI metrics?


Engagement with companies is an important part of the investment process. We engage  with companies seeking to improve behavior and disclosure, prioritizing KPIs as a measurement of success.

Our open engagement letters serve two purposes:
