ESG means using Environmental, Social and Governance factors to evaluate companies and countries on how far advanced they are with sustainability.

By investing solely in companies within the healthcare sector, HBM specifically provides funds to innovative young firms developing groundbreaking therapies that have the potential to improve the health and wellbeing of people around the globe. HBM generally invests in development stage companies, which are often exclusively engaged in R&D, as many of them do not have products on the market. Carbon emissions and the use of natural resources are typically low. Accordingly, their negative impact on the environment is limited. On the other hand, such firms have a positive impact on society by creating jobs and providing a dynamic and modern working environment with equal rights and opportunities for their employees.
