A study conducted by the Global Sustainable Investment Alliance (GISA) has found that sustainable investing now accounts for 30% of professionally managed assets globally. Sustainable investing, which factors environmental and social criteria into portfolio selection, has grown by 61% globally over two years, reaching $21 trillion at the beginning of 2014.
