IN BRIEF

At State Street Global Advisors, our mission is to invest responsibly so that we enable economic prosperity and social progress. As such, we are committed to responsible investing. Our heritage as an ESG investing leader goes back more than 30 years, having launched our first ESG mandate in 1985. As an early leader in low-carbon investing and a signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investing (UNPRI), we implement a variety of ESG investment styles across asset classes, and are a recognized leader in asset stewardship and corporate governance.

In addition, following a robust research and due diligence examination of more than 40 ESG data providers, State Street Global Advisors allocated significant resources toward building our ESG data architecture, which gives our portfolio managers, researchers and strategists access to ESG data from 12 best-in-class data vendors. We use our ESG data architecture to power our ESG strategy development and innovation and have a special expertise in climate investing.
