The rise of ESG investing

Posted in Sustainability, White Papers and Reporting on 13 November 2019 By Leighton Barnish, Head of Stakeholder Engagement

Why investing in good is good investing and what it means for companies.

The importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) to investors is growing. According to the Global Sustainable Investment Alliance (GSIA) annual review, assets under management that are invested sustainably stood at $30.7 trillion globally, in 2019 – more than a quarter of all assets under management and a 34% increase in two years1. Alongside this, it is estimated the global impact investing market has now grown to a value of $502 billion2.

By talking to sustainable investors, asset managers, industry professionals and sustainability quantitative analysts, we explore the global trend of sustainable investing. We looked at how it started, where it’s going and what the implications of this are on the future of the sustainability agenda.
