Sustainability is inexorably becoming an essential criterion in the investment process. The interpretation of ESG definitions sets the framework for sustainable investments. Translated, the abbreviation ESG stands for environment, social and responsible corporate governance. Investing sustainably doesn't necessarily mean sacrificing returns; we present three first-class investment opportunities.

About the author


ENCAVIS AG - producing more energy than a nuclear power plant

Encavis is a major independent power producer. Its electricity is generated exclusively from renewable energy sources. The Company acquires and operates solar parks and (onshore) wind farms and is active in ten European countries. Through guaranteed feed-in tariffs or long-term power purchase agreements, stable and predictable earnings are achieved. Through Encavis Asset Management AG, the Group offers its expertise to institutional investors.

Encavis generally invests conservatively. Investments are only made in solar and wind parks that are in the construction phase, turnkey or already in operation. In the meantime, the Hamburg-based Company has built up a considerable portfolio with a capacity of 1.8 GW. By comparison, a medium-sized nuclear plant has a rated capacity of 1.4 GW and can thus supply around 3.5 million households. A good 2/3 of the energy generated by Encavis is generated by photovoltaics. In relation to the entire portfolio, the guaranteed feed-in tariff's average duration is 13 years, which promises a high degree of planning security.

The Group confirmed its targets for the full year when presenting its Q3 data. Encavis aims to increase sales to over EUR 280 million (previous year: EUR 273.8 million). Currently, the SDAX group is valued at around EUR 3 billion. In their current study, the DZ Bank analysts recommend the share as a buy with a target price of EUR 25.10. That is a full 20% upside potential.

DYNACERT INC - the right answers to pressing questions

dynaCERT is fully committed to emission reductions as part of its business. The Toronto-based Company manufactures and markets "Carbon Emission Reduction Technology" for use in internal combustion engines. The Company has developed a patented hydrogen technology for retrofitting diesel engines, which can significantly reduce fuel consumption and pollutant emissions.

The technology is already widely used in the market for road vehicles, power generation plants, mining and forestry machinery, ships and rail locomotives. North American fleet operators are an important customer group. For their trucks, the CleanTech Company offers conversion kits that pay for themselves relatively quickly. In addition, fuel savings can be measured using software also offered by the Company. In the future, the technology solution will be expanded to include additional features.

The Canadians' innovative products have a lot of potential; after all, reducing emissions is not only desirable from a sustainability perspective. The pricing of emissions provides an additional argument for the growing demand for dynaCERT solutions.

PNE AG - price exhausted after doubling?

The PNE Group has been successfully active in the wind energy sector since the mid-1990s. PNE covers the entire value chain from development, project planning, realization, financing, operation, sales and onshore wind farms' repowering. In addition, offshore wind farms are developed until they are ready for construction. In 2019, the Company broke through the 3,000 MW installed nominal capacity mark. Currently, the PNE Group is active in Europe, South Africa and North America.

In the future, PNE wants to position itself much more broadly. The vision is to transform the Company into a "Clean Energy Solutions Provider", i.e., a provider of solutions from different renewable energies. In addition to wind energy, photovoltaics and storage solutions and power-to-gas technologies focusing on hydrogen, are to be the subject of business activities. Also, the geographical radius of action is to be significantly expanded.

PNE confirmed its operating profit targets with EBITDA of EUR 15 to 20 million and EBIT of EUR 5 to 10 million for the current fiscal year. The 9M figures showed a loss due to fewer project disposals. The Company is currently valued at around EUR 620 million. The share price has doubled to EUR 8 in 2020. If we take the opinion of First Berlin analysts into account, the stock is exhausted. However, we believe that anyone looking at the medium-term prospects will see further upside potential.

Alphabet, Water Ways Technologies, TOMRA Systems: Return on investment with clean water and sustainability

  • Sustainability

Clean water is a human right for a reason. When precious water is polluted, diseases spread. Children and the elderly in particular suffer from water pollution. Geo-strategists are even expecting armed conflicts over water. For example, when huge rivers, which are often the lifelines of entire continents, become polluted and countries downstream suffer. We present three stocks that have something to do with water.

Central African Gold, Nordex, NIO - The potential of sustainability

  • Sustainability

The topic of sustainability is increasingly on people's minds. Five years ago, the subject was not even interesting to most. Now, more than 80% of people are thinking about it. Companies' customers spend more money if a product is sustainable; it is a sign of quality and gives them a positive image. If you use sustainable electricity and use resources sparingly, you can also save costs. All these are reasons why renewable energies and e-mobility are currently becoming more and more important.

At present, the issue of sustainability is preoccupying us in all areas of life. As a result, entirely new sectors of the economy are emerging. Companies that build on these themes face a dazzling future.
