OMFIF’s survey of global public pension and sovereign funds revealed there is clear appetite among public investors to increase allocations to environmental, social and governance assets.

They explore the specific data hurdles regarding ESG investing, how investors are using data differently when considering sustainable assets and the future of ESG as a distinct asset class. They also look into the benefits of a deeper understanding of supply chains, which often isn’t limited to ESG-related risk management.
