We are pleased to share with you the latest edition of our Responsible Investment Update, a global review highlighting important new resources and reports about integrating environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) considerations into investment decision-making processes.
Go to the titles below to read articles on the following topics:
- Durban Blues – With a Hint of Green: Although Durban gave some the blues, closer examination of the 2011 UN Climate Change Conference unveils more than a hint of “green.” In this article, Mercer discusses some outcomes from the talks, challenges in tackling climate change and their implications, and key issues for investors.
- ESG Ratings Update – 5,000 and Counting: As our global, cross-asset class pool of ESG rated strategies grows past the 5,000 mark, Mercer takes inventory of the research and discusses some leading examples and challenges in moving ESG analysis forward.
- What Happens After You Sign the PRI? So, you’ve signed onto the UN Principles for Responsible Investment. What now? Mercer discusses first steps for signatories, along with considerations for new signatories in developing internal structure, capabilities, and reporting around the commitment.
