Key ESG Trends.

"From a geographic perspective, the GSIA data showed that European and Canadian assets were more diversified across different implementation strategies: in addition to negative screening, there were a higher proportion of assets using norms-based screening, corporate engagement, and integration approaches. Within the United States, the primary forms of implementation were integration, negative screening, and corporate engagement."

[COMMENTARY] This post has some fascinating charts on ESG investing globally. However, one figure that stands out — and I believe questionable — is the proportion of sustainable assets vs total managed assets in Europe at 58.896%. There is an explanatory note but to me, it seems to obfuscate the issue.
