New Report: Endowment ESG “Less Than Meets the Eye”

The Tellus Institute and the IRRC Institute have released a comprehensive report entitled “Environmental, Social and Governance Investing by College and University Endowments in the United States: Social Responsibility, Sustainability, and Stakeholder Relations.” Check out the survey of ESG investment in higher education at this link!

The authors find that “endowments no longer appear to be leaders in the greatly evolved institutional ESG investment space.” In fact, “the endowment community, on the whole, exhibits a very weak understanding of ESG investing strategies, trends, opportunities, and language.” We hope this publication will help colleges and universities return to the forefront of responsible investment.
