The Rise of Responsible Investment by James Gifford
Published on Apr 22, 2013
James Gifford says the global financial crisis has caused more firms to consider the impact of environmental, social and corporate governance factors on the long-term sustainability of a company. James Gofford, the Executive Director of the U.N. Principles for Responsible Investment says that only using financial metrics to gauge future value is "a bygone paradigm." Short-term investment strategies must be addressed by leaders coming together and saying, "Something is wrong here."
Dr. James Gifford is a Senior Fellow at the Initiative for Responsible Investment at the Harvard Kennedy School, where he researches sustainable investment in emerging markets and methods to deliver positive impact within mainstream investment strategies.
