Impact of Equity Engagement
Due to initiatives like the United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment, increasing numbers of investors have committeed to become more engaged on environmental, social, and government issues. Croatan Institute seeks to educate these investors about the wide range of impact opportunities available to them, including in public equity investment. To that end, Croatan Institute is coordinating a new, multi-stakeholder initiative to develop a robust reporting framework for documenting the impact of corporate engagement activities by public equity investors. The project hopes to integrate public equity investing more deeply into the impact investing field.
