US Sustainable Investing Assets Now Account for $17.1 Trillion—or 1 in 3 Dollars—of Total US AUM
The Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment (US SIF) released the 13th edition of the biennial Report on US Sustainable and Impact Investing Trends-
The report provides data on the US asset management firms and institutional asset owners using sustainable investment strategies and examines the ESG issues they consider in managing their portfolios.
The Trends report counts two main strategies as sustainable investing: ESG incorporation—applying various environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria in investment analysis and portfolio selection—and filing shareholder resolutions on ESG issues.
The top three specific issues for money managers and their institutional investor clients are climate change/carbon emissions, sustainable natural resources/agriculture and board issues.
