Industry Voice VIDEO: Schroders' Kate Rogers explains how measuring companies’ impacts could help protect profits and the planet

There is a new dimension to investing, according to Schroders' head of sustainability and wealth Kate Rogers.

"Traditionally we'd appraise investments on two dimensions: risk and return. But investing in this changing world means we need to consider a third dimension: impact," she says.

Watch the video to see Rogers give real life examples to demonstrate the importance of impact-adjusted profits.
