Vigeo supports UKSIF’s National Ethical Investment Week

October 13th to 19th is the UK’s 6th National Ethical Investment Week (NEIW). It is the opportunity to help develop the responsible investment industry by spreading the word that all investors have the power to make money and to make a positive difference – by making investments which take environmental, social and/or governance issues into account.

Vigeo are looking forward to playing an active role during the week.

We will start by raising awareness of the broader trends in the market through the release of our Green and Ethicial Funds Report  which will be released on October 14th.

We will also be publishing  a short report  looking at which UK companies demonstrate  good practice in constructing their business with strong corporate social responsibility, highlighting the latest constituents of the NYSE VIGEO UK20 index. We’ll also look at challenges companies have been facing through the Alerts we have been issuing.  This piece will also be accompanied by a special offer for asset owners  to conduct a Portfolio Analysis to assess their own portfolio exposure to ESG factors.

We are especially delighted  that we can finale our involvement in the week by supporting one of the chosen topics of this year’s NEIW – Women in Ethical Finance –  with an interview with our Chairwoman Nicole Notat. A inspirational and influential figure in the world of SRI and CSR.
