English edition of SSF Handbook on Sustainable Investments

Just one year after the publication of the handbook on sustainable investments for Swiss institutional asset owners in German and French, Swiss Sustainable Finance has published together with the CFA Institute Research Foundation an updated and translated publication in English, allowing the reach of the Handbook to extend far beyond Switzerland. With the target audience being pension funds, foundations, insurance companies, family offices and other institutional asset owners, the publication contains a comprehensive overview of the various available sustainable investment strategies. In addition, it contains concrete tips helpful in implementing a sustainable investment policy.

BHP has contributed to the book with a chapter on "Shareholder Engagement - Dialogue with Companies". Andrea Gäumann and Regula Simsa describe different aspects of Shareholder engagement, a long-term process aimed at systematically promoting key ESG aspects in the business practices of portfolio companies.
