The University of Melbourne's Sustainability Charter released in March 2016 set out a commitment to "implement investment strategies consistent with the University's commitment to sustainability and its financial and legal responsibilities".

Enabling Sustainable Investment for Inclusive Growth
 
01:27:13
On 29 September, ICTSD and the World Economic Forum will organise a session at the WTO Public Forum to explore options for enabling sustainable investment for inclusive growth. Sustainable investment and responsible supply chains practices can contribute to upgrading physical infrastructure, developing the technology and innovation capacity required to expand companies participation into the global markets, achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, and creating employment to ultimately increase prosperity for all. Discussions will address the following key questions: What is the status of sustainable development principles inclusion into investment agreements? How to increase the flow of sustainable investment, particularly to poorer countries, and is there a role for the WTO to facilitate such flows? What can the private and public sectors do to encourage and monitor responsible supply chain practices? The objective of the workshop is to further define and discuss sustainable and inclusive investment programmes in light of the global value chain reality.

Intentionally Designed Endowment Student Forum February 21, 2015 / South Hadley, MA Convened by Intentional Endowments Network and Mount Holyoke College Panelists: Cheryl Smith, Trillium Asset Management Lisa Hayles, Institutional Investment Services, Boston Common Asset Management Liz Michaels, Chief of Staff, Aperio Group This forum was for students, investment professionals, and senior administrators at universities and colleges to engage in a critical and collaborative dialogue around the concerns, strategies and methods of intentionally designed endowments. An intentionally designed endowment is a fairly new concept, involving aligning investment portfolios with institutional mission, values, and sustainability goals, without sacrificing returns. This forum was an opportunity for communication across stakeholder groups, encouraging the exchange of different knowledge and perspectives. While the fossil fuel divestment movement has brought mission-related investment issues to the fore for endowments, the purpose of this event was not to focus on or advocate for any one approach. We explored the full range of sustainable investment strategies -- positive and negative screens, ESG integration, impact investing, and more -- and generated possible solutions to their persistent barriers. The forum culminated in collective visioning for creating intentionally designed endowments as a meaningful contribution to supporting solutions to climate change and the global sustainability challenge.

Somalia Hosts Forum On Sustainable Energy
 
02:02
Mogadishu, 7 November 2017 - A two-day forum on investment opportunities in Somalia’s sustainable energy sector opened today in the Somali capital. The participants are led by the Federal Government of Somalia, members of the private sector and international partners. Speaking at today’s opening session, the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Somalia (SRSG), Michael Keating, lauded the three groups for coming together to address the energy challenges for Somalia. “This meeting today is about bringing key stakeholders together who can contribute to a take-off in access to energy, renewable energy in Somalia, and each of us has a strong interest in making this happen,” Mr. Keating. The SRSG said Somalia has enormous energy resources which can be used to address health, education, social, environmental and security challenges facing the country. However, he said that more regulation of the renewable energy sector was needed to promote its growth. “At the moment it’s fairly unregulated and even though some businesses are making money, it is very small compared to what could be done if the sector was more regulated,” Mr. Keating noted. Some speakers noted the adverse effects of 25 years of conflict and instability in hindering the development of Somalia’s energy sector. The federal Minister of Energy and Water Resources, Salim Aliyow Ibrow, said the government was in the process of drafting regulations to govern investment in the energy sector. He also recognized a pressing need for the country to move in the direction of renewable energy sources. “The country needs investment to harvest energy from the sun, water and wind. The investment will develop industries and hence create employment,” the minister added. The Deputy President of the Somali Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Abdirahman Abdullahi Adan, described the forum as a timely event, adding that Somalia needs to embrace sustainable use of energy. “We truly believe that this conference is being held at the most appropriate time, and we appeal for support to this initiative,” said Mr. Adan. Somalia’s federal Minister of Planning, Investment and Economic Development, Jamal Mohamed Hassan, said the government was working as a team to ensure the country has adequate electricity that can be provided at more affordable rates. A United Nations expert on renewable energy, Andrew Morton, observed that the energy sector in Somalia is in the hands of the country’s private sector, which has been receiving grants from the international community. “But to really grow, it needs to bring in financing, it needs to bring credit. And to get that happening, we need to set up the right environment. We need to have interesting projects and interesting businesses in which companies can invest,” Morton added. The forum will discuss challenges facing the energy sector that include low rates of investment and the high cost of energy in Somalia, which is saddled with one of the highest household tariffs for electricity in the world. It will also look at opportunities for investment in oil and gas in addition to renewable energy options such as wind, solar and hydropower.

Sustainable Investment: Geneva Capital Discusses Socially Responsible, SRI, ESG & Impact Investing
 
04:21
Sustainable Investment at http://www.GenevaCapitalSA.com - Swiss-based Private Equity Advisor Geneva Capital S.A. Founding Partner R. Scott Arnell discusses Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), Enviromental Social Governance (ESG) & Impact Investing in Frontier Markets with Jill Malandrino on The Street, an independent US-based financial news and services website co-founded by Jim Cramer, author and host of CNBC's show 'Mad Money' (produced by NBCUniversal News Group, a division of NBCUniversal, owned by Comcast [ CMCSA ]). https://youtu.be/lToUcsegiEM Originally published January 16, 2015. Jill Malandrino: Scott, explain to us what socially responsible investment is, and where has the growth come from in this market? Scott Arnell: Socially responsible investing, sustainable investing is an approach to investing that incorporates and integrates extra-financial data into the investment decision-making process. There are a lot of different ways that this is done, but the objectives are generally the same - that is to achieve competitive or superior market returns, while advancing the values of the institution or the investor that's behind it. Now, it's been growing at double-digit rates all across the different categories in Europe - between 11 and 52% in terms of assets-under-management over the last couple of years. The largest SRI, responsible investing category is exclusion, or sometimes referred to as negative screening. In that type of a strategy, the investment universe necessarily excludes investments in certain types of companies or certain types of stocks. So, examples of that would be investments in tobacco companies may be excluded or companies of cluster munitions or landmines or perhaps investment in companies that have business relations with the Sudanese government. The fastest-growing category in sustainable investment, socially responsible investing in terms of growth, albeit from a smaller base, is impact investing and this is where the investor tries to improve conditions on a socio-economic or environmental basis through the investing process. Some examples of that might be investing in housing for low income families, or in companies that are promoting fair-trade coffee in South America or Africa. Now the growth has always been driven in terms of absolute assets-under-management from pension funds, institutional investors and sovereign wealth funds. Where I work, in Europe, there is legislation in many countries like the UK, France, Germany that requires pension funds and public investment funds to disclose how is their portfolio is impacting social or environmental ESG concerns as well as the investment process. Jill Malandrino: Well your clients are all institutional-based, so the question of does this limit diversification where performance... it's a little bit different than a retail investor, because that would be the obvious question, there are other ways for them to improve performance, but looking at it on an absolute basis, when you employ SRI, do you lose any advantage because of less diversification or missing some of the performances of excluded stocks? Scott Arnell: That is a very good question, and when a client is thinking of getting into SRI, socially responsible investing / sustainable investment, that is the first question that they ask, and consequently, we have looked at that a lot. There are several studies out there and a lot of work that has been done, and I haven’t seen anything that indicates that you will necessarily under-perform the market by excluding aspects in your investing universe especially with the types of industries that typically get excluded in responsible investing. On the other hand, there have been studies out there that are promoting the idea that you will outperform the market by having responsible investing type portfolio. I don’t think the results on that are conclusive either. At the same time, I think there's a growing consensus that companies that do integrate sustainable investing, environmental social and governance, ESG - type factors in their business model and in their management, are better-managed companies and will outperform over the long run, nevertheless most funds and businesses are reporting results on a monthly or quarterly basis. It depends on your investment horizon. Jill Malandrino: OK thanks very much Scott for joining us. For The Street in New York, I'm Jill Malandrino.
