Leading investment institutions make the case for responsibility

13/06/2014

There is significant untapped potential for investors to exert a positive influence on the economy, environment and society, by practicing responsible investment, according to a new report from eleven leading investment institutions* with over US $5 trillion assets under management.

The institutions, which include both asset managers and owners, are part of the Investment Leaders Group (ILG) hosted by the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL). The group is supported by financial economists at the Cambridge Judge Business School.

The new report, The Value of Responsible Investment, warns that today’s economy continues to draw down on the world’s natural capital rather than living off its interest. It identifies a need for strong and collective leadership from the investment industry, arguing there is a “moral, financial and economic case for action”.
