How can NHBSR members benefit from the dramatic rise in Sustainable Investing?
We could discuss how investors do or should value sustainable practices; how to select 401(k) investment offerings that include sustainable options; and how to educate employees on making sustainable choices in their own financial planning.
Sustainable investing considers Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors to value companies for long-term financial performance. It is based upon an emerging body of research that suggests that companies’ environmental, social and governance performance is intimately connected to their financial performance.
