Sustainable Investing: The Art of Long-Term Performance

Evolving out of the ethical, socially responsible investment (SRI) and responsible investment waves, sustainable investment involves the conscious integration of environmental, social and governance factors into strategies for generating long-term financial returns. Billions of dollars, pounds, euro, and yen are being managed with a view toward these factors, and both the current worldwide financial crisis and the specter of global warming further highlight the imperative for patterns of finance and investment that are truly oriented toward long-term value creation, rather than a short-term focus that has arguably led to recent breakdowns in the capital markets. 

Sustainable Investing: The Art of Long-Term Performance is a new book written by international leaders in the field that thoroughly explains sustainable investment (history, evolution and mainstreaming); how to select sustainable companies and investments (screening criteria, indices, and indicators); the changing corporate landscape towards corporate social responsibility (CSR) and environmental sustainability; investment analysis and performance, and changes in capital markets.

Join Sustainable Investing co-editor/author Cary Krosinsky and chapter contributor Stephen Viederman as they discuss their conclusion that the best way to generate risk-adjusted returns in the 21st century is to fully incorporate long-term environmental, social, and economic trends into investment and ownership decision-making. Whether motivated by personal values or by the quest for superior returns, investors can explore risk mitigation and upside opportunities by leading the front-end of the sustainability curve.
