ESG assets worth over $13 trillion

At least US$13.6 trillion (€10.1 trillion) worth of professionally managed assets incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns into their investment selection and management, the

Global Sustainable Investment Alliance (GSIA) claims.

This represents 21.8% of total assets managed in the regions covered by a GSIA report including Europe, the US, Japan and Africa.

The release of the report coincides with the launch of the GSIA, which is a collaboration of seven sustainable investment organisations including the European Sustainable Investment Forum, the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association, and Vereniging van Beleggers voor Duurzame Ontwikkeling in the Netherlands.

GSIA says asset classes covered by the research include hedge funds, public equities and fixed income and also claims it “conclusively” shows that the sustainable investment industry has significant scale in the global arena.

Europe is the largest region with about 65% of the known global sustainable investing assets under management.
