Responsible Investing: Investor Trends and Implications for Your Company


Are you interested in leveraging financial markets to advance your company’s sustainability strategy? The UN Global Compact and Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) believe that corporate sustainability professionals together with their investor relations colleagues have the power to play a key role in improving the functions of the financial system.
