“An expanding body of research has resulted in the beginning of an exciting era in the discipline of impact investing, with a spectrum of approaches emerging, from identifying companies that adopt ESG-aware policies and practices to direct value-based investing,” said Casey Clark, Director of Sustainable and Impact Investing at Glenmede. “Given the tenured history we have implementing impact strategies for foundations and endowments, we saw an opportunity to sponsor a dedicated resource that has the potential to align values with investments.”
