The European Union has announced funding for a new program to help investors integrate environmental, social, and governance information into their investment decisions. The program will be led by the International Corporate Governance Network and the secretariat of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment, together with the European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies. Over the next year, the initiative will develop guidance on best practice for the integration of ESG, as well as a comprehensive professional development program.
 
Bank of America has awarded $280,000 dollars to East Bay nonprofits to develop jobs. The grants are part of the bank’s charitable foundation partnership with the East Bay Economic Development Alliance. Funds will go to eight nonprofits through the East Bay Community Foundation’s Workforce Development Fund which supports projects and programs to create employment opportunities for low- and moderate-income persons in the Oakland area.
