Why SRI, ESG, or Sustainable Investing?
Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) and Environmental, Social, and Governance Investing (ESG) — now collectively called Sustainable Investing, were once niche investment philosophies with only a small representation in the greater investment universe. But as Morningstar points out, times have changed.
“During 2020, flows into sustainable open-end and exchange-traded funds available to U.S. investors reached $51.1 billion. That was a significant increase over 2019 when flows were $21.4 billion, and a nearly tenfold increase over 2018 when flows were $5.4 billion.”
Wall Street has participated in this trend as well. According to the US SIF Foundation’s 2020 biennial Report on US Sustainable and Impact Investing Trends, Sustainable Investing assets now account for $17.1 trillion—or 1 in 3 dollars—of the total U.S. assets under professional management.
