Environmental investing has had a tumultuous time in recent years. Disappointment at global, political climate change developments, tariff withdrawals in certain markets and the price crash of the EU Emissions Trading System combined in a slump that left investors reeling. There are signs, however, that the worst is over and that the time is right to take a renewed look at the fundamentals of clean or green investing, which are still very much in place and will likely define a generation of asset opportunities. Contributions from: HowEsg, Local Government Super, MSCI ESG Research, Pictet Asset Management, Rabo Farm, RobecoSam, Towers Watson, Triodos Investment Management, Vontobel.
The Netherlands is one of the most active and fascinating countries for responsible investment in the world. Many of its investors have been leaders in sustainable investing and saving for decades, and they continue to influence from the front. This RI INSIGHT, published in association with Sustainalytics, includes interviews with APG, Eumedion, MN Services, PFZW/PGGM, SPF Beheer, Sustainalytics, VBDO and Pensioenfonds Vervoer. It charts their progress and looks at why and how Dutch investors are still at the forefront of long-term, fiduciary, responsible investment.
The RI INSIGHT / MSCI ESG Research Round Table Report 2014 brings together a group of respected professionals in ESG research, institutional consultancy and portfolio management to examine the real-world applications for ESG research in the risk/return decisions made by investment managers. The issue of how sustainability-themed data can apply to investment strategy, risk management and stock selection and monitoring is one of the most important in responsible investment. It gets to the heart of issues like ESG materiality, terminology, structural and psychological resistance to ESG in mainstream investing, as well as the limitations of ESG in changing the current institutional investment landscape. It also points to how responsible investment might position itself to elicit more longterm consideration of sustainability within asset management.
