ESG, Impact & Sustainable Investing
Improve your financial future – and the world around you.
Why sustainable investing?
Your investments can provide a path to financial security and support your worldview at the same time. If you wish to reflect your values in your investment strategy, we’ll work with you to create and manage a portfolio that seeks to lower risk, enhance long term returns, and contribute to your vision for a healthier society.
Let us show you how you can reflect your values in your investment strategy.
How does it work?
Thoughtful application of Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) research lies at the heart of sustainable investing. ESG analysis helps you better understand a company’s overall stability, its opportunity to create shareholder value, and its exposure to critical business risks. Simply put, ESG data can help inform sound investment decisions and allow you to tailor your portfolio to reflect your values.
Sustainable investing supports more resilient portfolios and healthier, smarter capitalism:
Improved risk management
Smarter allocation of capital
Proxy voting and engagement
Climate change mitigation
Company diversity and pay equity
Fair treatment of workers, suppliers, customers, communities
We can help you reflect your preference to invest in organizations that consider sustainability and their role in the broader community.

Perigon is carbon-neutral.
Perigon Wealth Management, LLC ("Perigon") is carbon neutral because we have received eligibility for the Carbonfree® Business Partnership Program through Carbonfund.org Foundation for the operational years of 2019, 2020, and 2021. In order to be eligible for the Carbonfree® Business Partnership Program, a professional services company must meet a minimum of 32 metric tonnes in estimated annual operating emissions based on calculation and a minimum annual donation. The estimated annual operating emissions calculation is based on office square footage, estimated employee business travel, and estimated employee commuting emissions. If a firm does not meet the minimum annual operating emissions requirement, the firm can make an additional donation used to purchase and retire the corresponding quantity of carbon offsets to neutralize those emissions.

Investing involves risk, including the potential loss of principal. No investment strategy can guarantee a profit or protect against loss in periods of declining values.
When an investment process considers environmental, social, and governance factors (“ESG”), the advisor may choose to avoid investments that might otherwise be considered or sell investments due to changes in ESG risk factors as part of the overall investment decision process. The use of environmental, social, and governance factors may impact investment exposure to issuers, industries, sectors, and countries, potentially resulting in higher or lower returns than a similar investment strategy without such screens.
