Sustainable and Responsible Investment Trends

For the past 10 years, Croatan Institute’s team has been involved in surveying, researching, and analyzing trends in sustainable and responsible investing in the United States for the US SIF Foundation’s biennial report.

The Trends report includes analyses of community investing, shareholder advocacy, and integration of environmental, social, and governance criteria across all asset classes among US-domiciled funds. The report aggregates data to reveal the most popular ESG considerations for institutional investors and money managers, and highlights emerging trends in the field of sustainable and responsible investing.
