Why it matters

Addressing environmental, social and governance factors in our investment and ownership decisions makes good business sense. This long-term approach adds value to all our stakeholders and means that the investment decisions we make today take into account the wellbeing of future generations.

Funding a greener future

We have funds that are specifically focused on infrastructure, renewable energy and housing. By the end of 2015 we had invested R10.2 billion* in affordable housing projects. A further R57 billion* was invested in other infrastructure projects including schools and sustainable agriculture. Through Old Mutual Investment Group and Nedbank, we are a leading participant in the South African Government’s renewable energy programme. This will help the country’s transition to a mixed-energy, resourceefficient and socially inclusive economy.

Generating energy and jobs, Cape Town, South Africa

By the end of 2015, we had committed R60.5 billion of our customers’ money in renewable energy projects, which also aim to drive job creation and enterprise development in surrounding communities. One such project is the 66 megawatt Hopefield Windfarm, developed by Old Mutual Alternative
