CSR Investment Summit in NYC to Evaluate ESG Investing Trends

Sustainable investments are on the rise in the U.S. and are recording solid profits. From 2012 through 2014, assets in sustainable, responsible, and impact investments reported a growth of 76 percent, from $3.74 trillion to $6.57, according to the Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment. And a recent “Sustainable Reality” report from Morgan Stanley shows that sustainable investments have met or exceeded the performance of traditional investments.

To evaluate these trends, S-Network Global Indexes, the developer of the Thomson Reuters Corporate Responsibility Ratings and Indexes, is hosting “Summer in the City,” its third annual CSR Investing Summit in New York, on July 22nd. The one-day conference will feature presentations on the impact of ESG factors on shareholder value and the analysis of ESG ratings methodology. Registration for the event can be made at www.csrinvestingsummit.org.
