Europe lagging in sustainable investment

Monday, October 2, 2017

Globally, investors see sustainable investing as a way to drive not only societal, social and environmental change, but also profit.

Schroders surveyed 22,000 investors across 30 countries and found that sustainable investing was the top investment topic of which most people would like to improve their knowledge.

Investors are also putting their money where their mouths are and allocating increasing sums to sustainable investments.

However, this trend appears to be stronger in Asia and the Americas than in Europe.
