#1 New ESG Leaders Handbook 2023 launched by Global Fund Search & NordSIP

Apart from being a badge of honour for sustainable asset managers, a recognised ESG leadership status has also become a statement these days. As critics of ESG investing are getting louder, it becomes increasingly important for those who subscribe to the concept to demonstrate that they are still on course. The polarisation of the issues also increases more than ever the need to maintain high standards. To help sustainable investors navigate this complex field, in 2022, NordSIP and Global Fund Search partnered to put together a handbook on ESG Leaders. In this second edition of the handbook, we have kept the concept intact in the name of continuity. As a reminder, it is institutional demand that is the ultimate criterion for selecting the ESG leaders featured in this publication. Only managers who have been successful in ESG-related searches are invited to participate. We have designed a standardised template to help readers gauge and compare the managers’ sustainability commitment and the extent to which it is fulfilled.
