The New SRI: Trends in Values and Controversies Screening
We have entered a new era of socially responsible investing. For over 40 years, institutional investors have been screening out companies that do not align with client mandates, religions or values. As the field of responsible investing grows, new issues are emerging such as thermal coal, for-profit prisons and sovereign screens. With increasingly sophisticated data and tools, institutional investors have the ability to complement negative screening strategies with positive screening, impact investing, and engagement in a way that may not have been possible in the earlier years of SRI. Some institutional investors with a traditional screening strategy are now also considering approaches that include ESG integration.
Watch our webinar to learn the current state of SRI practices, emergence of new screening trends, and developments in ESG integration and positive screening.
