Responsible investing is growing in popularity as investors want to add a social slant to their investments. Consumers demand more socially conscious products. And employees demand that their employers be committed to social causes, with a Randstad survey showing that 77% of Canadians only want to work for a company that has a strong corporate social responsibility program.

With all the activity around social responsibility, funds are increasingly adding an ESG (environment, social, governance) lens to their investment process. Despite the misconception that investors in ESG funds must sacrifice performance, ESG is a source of alpha, and fund companies are coming up with innovative and practical ways to generate the best returns for their shareholders.
