Responsible Investment Benchmarking Study
23 July 2009 at 1:33 pm
The Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA) is calling on the industry to participate in its annual benchmark study, Responsible Investment 2009, detailing the size and growth of the Australasian responsible investment market.
RIAA executive director Louise O’Halloran says this report is absolutely key to ensuring the accurate, insightful and intelligent reporting of responsible investment by the media, by academia and by related industries.
O’Halloran says it is also vital data for government in their bid to understand industry movements and progress.
The report is prepared by Corporate Monitor to capture the breadth and depth of activity in the marketplace, both from a quantitative perspective (for industry participants) and from a narrative perspective (for those who are learning about the area).
Industry participants who have contributed previously are asked to provide Corporate Monitor with the relevant data. New participants are asked to contact Corporate Monitor to ensure their data can be included in the study.
Responsible Investment 2009 will include a substantial new section on the breadth and depth of cleantech investing in Australia and abroad.
It will also once again include information on environmental, social and governance (ESG) research by mainstream funds, support for the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI), and new water, waste, energy, sustainable agriculture and forestry funds.
