In the past week, the majority of the sectors had a positive performance yet again. The Mobility and Energy Production & Storage sectors performed best with a 4% increase each. In each sector, there was an overall increase in stocks. However, Move About Group AB stood out with a 12% increase in the mobility sector, while Gigasun AB increased 20% in the Energy Production & Storage sector. CO2 & Carbon Capture fell 5% driven by a 14% decrease in Enersize’s share price.

The average return of impact stocks the past week was 1.4% driven by an overall increase rather than a few companies standing out. All sectors except for the mobility sector are still down year-to-date and thus underperforming relative to the majority of global indexes that have risen.
