Increasingly, institutional investors, asset managers, and analysts are incorporating ESG factors into their decision-making. The US Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment estimates that now more than a fifth ($8.7trn) of the funds under professional management in America is screened on SRI criteria.

In coming years boomers will pass on trillions of dollars in the largest intergenerational wealth transfer—ever. And Millennials believe in sustainable investing. Details here.
