Policy Overhaul To Align Institutional Investment With Sustainable Development


Ahead of Historic SDGs Summit, UNEP and CalPERS Call for Policy Overhaul to Align Institutional Investment with Sustainable Development

Only days ahead of the historic summit to adopt the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a new UN study calls on regulators to implement proactive policies that build institutional investment frameworks, institutions and culture with sustainability at their core.

The report, entitled “Financial Reform, Institutional Investors and Sustainable Development: A review of current policy initiatives and proposals for further progress” was produced by the United Nations Environment Programme Inquiry into the Design of a Sustainable Financial System (UNEP Inquiry) and the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS).
