US SIF honors the memory and legacy of Nelson Mandela


US SIF: The Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment honors the life and actions of Nelson Mandela. The roots of  today's sustainable investment field can be found in the efforts of investors, often undertaken with civil society partners in South Africa and around the world, to help eradicate apartheid by putting pressure on  companies doing business in  South Africa. Sustainable and responsible investors have continued efforts to support human rights and address inequality in the decades since. The life of Mandela will continue to influence us as we move forward. Our sympathies are with the Mandela family, the people of South Africa, and indeed the people of the world who all mourn this significant loss.
