Embedding principles into investment choices by screening out companies involved in certain industries, products or activities is challenging to implement thoughtfully. Unrefined approaches are overly restrictive, introducing unnecessary risk. OWL’s data-driven Principles-based Screening identifies companies that are meaningfully involved in the products/activities an investor wants to avoid.
Leveraging artificial intelligence technology, OWL ESG’s Principles-based Screening tool determines when a company’s actions materially conflicts with investors’ ethical priorities.
Apply both involvement and revenue-based thresholds to determine whether a company passes or fails a principles-based screen.
Determine if companies conduct business in countries that don’t respect human rights, demonstrate violence against their own citizens or the international community.
Discover if companies are involved in litigation or have been convicted of unlawful actions (with associated fines & penalties), involving corruption, human rights, labor, or the environment.
• Focus on your investable universe when applying principles-based screening that determines the extent of an entity’s involvement in a given activity, (for example, differentiate between companies that make alcoholic beverages and grocery stores that sell them).
Access a wide variety of screens, such as: Thermal Coal • Tobacco • Alcohol • Gambling • Animal Testing • Nuclear Power • Palm Oil • Fossil Fuels • GMO Products • Land Mines • Adult Entertainment • Fire Arms • Nuclear Weapons • Fracking
