Dimensional Receives Climate Neutral Operations Certification

Sustainable thinking

WealthFlow endeavours to always work with partners whose values align closely with our own and, as advocates for both sustainable investing and sustainable business practices, we are delighted to share Dimensional Fund Advisors’ achievement of a Climate Neutral Operations Certification by South Pole.

“We are proud to be one of the first investment managers to achieve a Climate Neutral Operations Certification by South Pole,” said Gerard O’Reilly, Co-CEO and Chief Investment Officer of Dimensional Fund Advisors. “This builds on our long-standing commitment to sustainability. We have long embraced recycling and energy efficiency in all of our offices around the world. We have also managed robust sustainability investment solutions for almost 15 years.”

To achieve this certification, Dimensional offset all of their operational greenhouse gas emissions from 2020 by purchasing carbon offsets that support projects which reduce or remove greenhouse gas emissions, including:

    • Kariba forest protection in Zimbabwe
    • Myamyn Lowland forest conservation in Australia
    • Amazon tropical forest conservation in Brazil
    • Garcia River Forest protection efforts in the US

“Dimensional’s offsets are an example of tangible climate action which drives positive environmental change by removing carbon emissions from the atmosphere,” said Rebecca Self, Director of Sustainable Finance at South Pole. Science shows that greenhouse gas emissions are the leading cause of anthropogenic climate change. By reducing and removing greenhouse gas emissions, this helps to mitigate the adverse impacts of climate change. This science is central to Dimensional’s sustainability efforts in its operations, but also the firm’s sustainability investment strategies. Through their experience, Dimensional can not only ensure that funds are environmentally sustainable, but also that they reap favourable returns.
