The next economic revolution has begun. At Lombard Odier, we believe sustainability will drive returns in the next three to five years and beyond. Our current operating model is unsustainable. It simply has to change, and the time is now. This global shift is already transforming our economies and the companies that drive them. And it is changing how we invest. This is the sustainability revolution, and, we believe, it is the largest investment driver in history.
