McKinsey Quarterly has just published an interview with Al gore and David Blood, from Generation Investment Management, which explores reconciling sustainability and socially responsible investing with the creation of long-term shareholder value.
It’s an interview worth while reading. Through Generation Investment, they’re changing the approach of investing to a long-term approach; that is gaining superior returns for investors while integrating sustainability into an investment model. They base this on the conviction that the context of business is clearly changing. “We are now confronting the limits of our ecological system, and at the same time societal expectations of business are widening. People realize that there are reputation issues related to sustainability, but they also recognize that, in the end, this is about driving profitability and competitive position.”

* Three years ago, former US Vice President Al Gore joined with David Blood, the former head of Goldman Sachs Asset Management, to form an investment-management firm dedicated to investing for sustainability—that is, assessing the way social, economic, environmental, and ethical factors affect the strategy and valuation of businesses.
