Eurosif has just published the latest Sustainable and Responsible Investment (SRI) figures and trends in "European SRI Study 2008". This unique study highlights the scale of European SRI as well as European and National trends across thirteen countries.
Eurosif's study finds that the European SRI market's growth is driven by:
- An increasing demand from institutional investors, for which responsible investment becomes a matter of risk management, particularly around the area of climate change,
- A further mainstreaming of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations into traditional financial services,
- External pressure from NGOs and media,
- A growing interest from individuals, particularly wealthy individuals.
