Responsible investments markets exhibit significant growth
08/17/2019 Since 1 year

According to Gema Sacristán, Chief Investment Officer at IDB Invest, incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors to capital markets implies joining financial analysis and sustainable impacts considerations. In the long-term, by committing to comply with the principles for responsible and sustainable investment facilitates reaching corporate economic goals. Gema Sacristan also stated that if we quantify all financial assets that observe the guidelines put in place since the Principles for Responsible Investment were launched, those assets amount to 86 billion dollars. A sustainable financial market has thus developed with the participation of different stakeholders, development banks, national governments, municipalities, and corporations, both private and public. These markets are also showing interesting expansive trends in Latin America.
