The US SIF Foundation's 2018 biennial Report on US Sustainable, Responsible and Impact Investing Trends, released today, found that sustainable, responsible and impact investing (SRI) assets now account for $12.0 trillion—or one in four dollars—of the $46.6 trillion in total assets under professional management in the United States. This represents a 38 percent increase over 2016.
ESG information is material to investors, and the SEC has clear statutory authority to require public companies to disclose these risks.
The report provides data on the US asset management firms and institutional asset owners using one or more sustainable investment strategies and examines the ESG issues they consider in managing their portfolios.
