Sustainable investing. Responsible investing. ESG (environmental, social and governance) investing. Call it what you will, but it’s here to stay. And it’s picking up steam and going mainstream, a Morningstar Canada forum on ESG investing was told.

The Feb. 27 Morningstar Executive Forum focused on ESG in terms of active versus passive investing, advocacy within companies by investors, the role of ESG factors in developed versus emerging markets, and ESG as a source of alpha.

Three panelists spoke at the forum – John Hale, Morningstar’s global head of sustainable investing research, Jeremy Peng, VP of investments and portfolio manager at NEI investments, and Judy Cotte, founder and CEO of ESG Global Advisors. The panel was moderated by Michael Keaveney, director of investment management at Morningstar Associates.
