For photography buff Chin Wei Jia, one of the most memorable images she captured was that of a Vietnamese family houseboat, packed with people, livestock and laundry, gliding on the river's calm surface, soaking up rays of the late afternoon sun.

"I took that photo on my phone, during a sampan ride in Da Nang, just outside the city. It's one of my favourites, because it was a snapshot of a family living their life, in their home," said Chin, the Group Chief Executive Officer of SGX-listed private healthcare provider Health Management International (HMI) Ltd.

Environmental issues are a game changer for investors

Editor: Environmental and social issues affect valuation and financial performance. If your investment decisions focus only on the financial disclosures, you will not be looking at the complete picture. Share prices of firms that endorse sustainability have been proven to outperform those who have not in the long run (source: Harvard Business School (2012)). 81% of market value in the S&P 500 is due to intangible factors (environmental capital, human capital, sustainability governance and stakeholder relationships). Only 19% is accounted for by physical and financial assets.

Environmental risks can have significant costs, in terms of clean up costs and legal costs. Social risks such as employee strikes, third-party investigations and community protests may result in delays. Sustainability risks also have potential reputational damage.

By investing in companies that incorporate sound environmental and social practices, you are proactively endorsing companies that are investing in their future. Would you knowingly invest in companies that are emitting excessive toxic chemicals, polluting water sources or have poor labour practices? Or would you rather use your investments to support companies that are embracing sustainability and investing in their future?
