Responsible Investing Using ESG Factors (RIUF)


Responsible investment (RI) refers to the incorporation of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into the selection and management of investments.

There is growing evidence that incorporating ESG factors into investment decisions can reduce risk and improve long-term financial returns. ESG issues are also some of the most important drivers of change in the world today. And these are not just societal issues; they are critical economic issues with significant implications for businesses and investors.

CSI collaborated with the Responsible Investment Association (RIA) in developing this course.


The Responsible Investing Using ESG Factors online mini-course provides background knowledge and valuable insight into the role responsible investment could play in a client's portfolio.  Although in the past you may not have considered incorporating responsible investment tactics into a broader investment strategy, the course presents a different perspective for consideration.
