2014 Global Sustainable Investment Review

Executive Summary의 일부

In early 2013, the Global Sustainable Investment Association (GSIA) released the Global Sustainable Investment Review 2012, the first report to collate the results from the market studies of regional sustainable investment forums for Europe, the United States, Canada, Asia, Japan, Australasia and Africa. In the period since the launch of the inaugural study, the global sustainable investment market has continued to grow both in absolute and relative terms, rising from $13.3 trillion1 at the outset of 2012 to $21.4 trillion at the start of 2014, and from 21.5 percent to 30.2 percent of the professionally managed assets in the regions covered. Over this two-year period, the fastest growing region has been the United States, followed by Canada and Europe. These three regions are also the largest regions in terms of assets, accounting for 99 percent of global sustainable investing assets. Sustainable investing is an investment approach that considers environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in portfolio selection and management. For the purpose of this global report and for articulating our shared work in the broadest way, GSIA uses an inclusive definition of sustainable investing, without drawing distinctions between this and related terms such as responsible investing, socially responsible investing and impact investing. These are collectively referred to as sustainable investing or SRI. Sustainable investment encompasses the following activities and strategies:

1. Negative/exclusionary screening,
2. Positive/best-in-class screening,
3. Norms-based screening,
4. Integration of ESG factors,
5. Sustainability-themed investing,
6. Impact/community investing, and
7. Corporate engagement and shareholder action.
