Take a look at some of the areas we have invested in, helping to drive towards environmental and societal change, one investment at a time.
UnitedHealth Group is an American healthcare organisation providing health insurance and speciality health services. Their mission is to help people live healthier lives and to help make the health system work better for everyone. Healthcare in the U.S. is fragmented, with many payment models failing to prioritise and incentivise value, quality and health outcomes. Health information is not being used to its full potential. UnitedHealth Group are committed to leading development of a more modern, progressive and effective health system, empowering healthcare providers to better serve consumers and improve outcomes for individuals. Improving health, through value-based care and health plans tailored to each community’s needs, can ultimately improve the quality of life for those community’s members.
Schneider Electric provides energy management and automation solutions worldwide. Founded in 1836, it operates through four businesses, each of which provides solutions to different industries. This includes low-voltage power and computer-based systems that control the mechanical and electrical equipment of a building, such as air conditioning and heating. Schneider Electric is leading the digital transformation of the industrial automation market. It has developed EcoStruxure; software that simplifies the collection of data from devices around an organisation. This data is then analysed to provide the user with critical insights to deliver efficiency, reliability and sustainability to their business. The company has also launched the Green Premium ecolabel, which certifies that products are produced in a sustainable way and contain as few hazardous substances as possible.
Cogna provide quality and affordable education to place lower-income students in a better position to enter the public university system. Founded in 1966, Cogna is the largest private educational company in Brazil. Generally speaking, affluent children in Brazil attend expensive private schools and progress into public universities, which creates a barrier for less-affluent children. In the past, the Brazilian government would help through grants and loan programmes, but this is no longer the case. As the government is no longer able to fill this gap, Cogna has become a more affordable and effective private option. Cogna offers better access to education in a country where only 17% of 25-34 year-olds have university degrees (Vs 43% average in the OECD). They educate two million students across Brazil and reach 967 municipalities via their distance learning initiatives – improving access to higher education for students living in more rural areas.
