Sustainable Investing in Emerging Markets: Unscathed by the Financial Crisis

Sustainable Investing in Emerging Markets: Unscathed by the Financial Crisis

Published by IFC Sustainability
Sustainable Investing in Emerging Markets: Unscathed by the Financial Crisis surveys the attitudes of corporate executives and investment professionals. It provides a unique "before and after" snapshot of mainstream investor opinion on sustainability issues in emerging market equity investment, comparing pre-crisis (2007) to mid-crisis (2009). In 2009, 46 percent of asset owners strongly agreed with the statement "ESG issues are an important part of our research, portfolio management and manager selection," up from 36 percent in 2007. The majority of asset owners (78 percent) think the importance of ESG factors has been amplified by the crisis and will result in greater use of ESG criteria over time. The report highlights some of IFC's investment and advisory service clients with good sustainability track record, that have continued to perform well despite the crisis.
