Strategy And Objective

Putnam Sustainable Leaders Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation. We invest mainly in common stocks of U.S. companies of any size, with a focus on companies that we believe exhibit a commitment to sustainable business practices. Stocks of companies that exhibit a commitment to sustainable business practices are typically, but not always, considered to be growth stocks. Growth stocks are stocks of companies whose earnings are expected to grow faster than those of similar firms, and whose business growth and other characteristics may lead to an increase in stock price. We may consider, among other factors, a companys sustainable business practices (as described below), valuation, financial strength, growth potential, competitive position in its industry, projected future earnings, cash flows and dividends when deciding whether to buy or sell investments. We may also invest in non-U.S. companies. Sustainable investing. We believe that companies that exhibit leadership in sustainable business practices also often exhibit more profitable, durable financial returns with lower risk profiles. Accordingly, in selecting investments, we focus on companies that we believe have a demonstrated commitment to sustainable business practices in areas that are relevant and material to their long-term financial returns and risk profiles. This commitment may be reflected through environmental, social and/or corporate governance (ESG) policies, practices or outcomes. The funds approach to sustainable investing incorporates fundamental research together with consideration of ESG factors. Environmental factors include, for example, a companys carbon intensity and use of resources like water or minerals. Sustainability measures in the area might include plans to reduce waste, increase recycling, or improve product design to be less resource intensive. Social factors include, for example, labor practices and supply chain management. Sustainability measures in this area might include programs to improve employee well-being, commitment to workplace equality and diversity, or improved stewardship of supplier relationships and working conditions. Corporate governance factors include, for example, board composition and executive compensation. Sustainability measures in this area might include improvements in board independence or diversity, or alignment of management incentives with the company s strategic sustainability objectives. It is likely that sustainable business practices, as well as the metrics and measurements that we use to evaluate them, will continue to evolve over time.
