Responsible Investment

book series


General Editor: Dr Rory Sullivan


The profile of responsible investment has grown exponentially over the past five years – over 700 asset owners and asset managers are now signatories to the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment; over 500 institutional investors support the Carbon Disclosure Project; and the European Social Investment Forum estimates that the total socially responsible investment (SRI) assets under management in Europe have doubled over the period 2007–2009.

There is great excitement about the potential for responsible investment to contribute to better investment returns and to deliver better social, environmental and governance outcomes. There is a growing body of evidence that responsible investment can deliver in both of these areas, with an increasing number of case studies and publications highlighting the investment benefits that have accrued through a focus on environmental, social and governance factors, the improvements in corporate reporting and performance that have resulted from investor engagement, and the contribution that investors have made to public policy debates, in particular on corporate governance and climate change.

Yet, for all of the excitement and enthusiasm, important questions remain. Can responsible investment strategies systematically deliver better investment returns for all investors? Can responsible investment really deliver better social and environmental outcomes, or a more sustainable world? Does responsible investment really signal a substantive change in investment practice or is it, at its heart, a business-as-usual strategy? What role, if any, can responsible investment play in preventing a recurrence of the global financial crisis?

The Greenleaf Responsible Investment Series

In 2009, Greenleaf launched its ground-breaking Responsible Investment series to provide a forum for outstanding empirical and theoretical work on all aspects of responsible investment, allowing the tensions and practical realities of responsible investment to be addressed in a readable, robust and conceptually and empirically rigorous format.

The first two books in the Responsible Investment series are:

In 2013, we will be publishing a special issue of the Journal of Corporate Citizenship on Responsible Investment in Emerging Markets, a book on Risk and Climate Adaptation and a collection of Case Studies.

Greenleaf is currently considering titles for 2014. We are particularly interested in contributions on the following topics::
