Investing (e.g. buying shares in a company) does not create these outputs and outcomes: they are instead generated by the activities of our underlying portfolio holdings. An investment can be associated with these measures based on company disclosures and share of ownership. The measures shown will differ depending on the amount invested and portfolio invested in.
