Investors shouldn’t have to choose between a portfolio’s long-term financial return and its positive global impact. That’s why we developed the Engine No. 1 Total Value Framework which ties environmental, social, and governance impacts directly to financial value creation.
We believe a company’s performance is enhanced by the investments it makes in its employees, customers, communities, and the environment. We focus on identifying impacts that are crucial economic drivers—ones that shareholders are demanding, and the market will increasingly reward.
Our Total Value Framework is a data-driven approach that integrates non-traditional but financially material ESG data, methods, and systems into traditional analysis. We avoid common ESG scores and ranks in favor of quantifying corporate stakeholder impact in actual dollar amounts.

Engine No. 1 is an impact investment group purpose-built to create long-term value by driving positive impact through active ownership. The firm was founded on the shared belief that a company’s ability to create long-term shareholder value depends on the investments it makes in employees, customers, communities, and the environment.
