"While the top-line percentage was unchanged, plans with more than $20 billion in assets increased incorporation of ESG factors by 136% from 2013 to 2017, according to the findings. The authors note that these plans now have the highest rate of incorporation at 78%, compared to only 30% for the smallest funds. ESG adoption across all plan sizes has increased 68% since the firm′s first such survey in 2013."
