Sustainability News & Research
for Professional Investors by Professional Investors
Our mission is to drive change in the asset management and finance community at large, so that investors are equipped to make better decisions.
We aim to provide quality information about financial and economic news and analysis, thereby increasing knowledge about sustainable and impact investing in the Nordic institutional investment community and beyond. We hope that better-informed investors will direct more capital towards solving global issues, such as climate change and increased inequalities across the globe.
Alongside our news coverage, information spreading and analysis, we also provide research and other support services to partner organisations that share our goals. Currently, we serve as the secretariat and communications partner for Swesif, the Swedish Sustainable Investment Forum and are co-founder and education partner of SITA, Sustainable Investment Training Associates.
