Sustainable investments totaled $35.3 tr at the start of 2020, according to the Global Sustainable Investment Alliance. This equals roughly a third of all global assets under management and reflects a 15% increase from 2018.
Overall, 35.9% of assets managed across the United States, Europe, Australasia, Japan and Canada were sustainability driven by early 2020, according to the biennial Global Sustainable Investment Review. This is 2.5% above the level registered in 2018. "The report again demonstrates that sustainable investment is a major force shaping global capital markets, and, in turn is influencing companies and others seeking to raise capital in those global markets," the report said.
