The increase in the core Sustainable and Responsible Investments (SRI) every year broken down by the the groups of new countries added every reporting year. Sustainable and Responsible Investment (SRI) is defined by the European Sustainable Investment Forum (Eurosif) as “any type of investment process that combines investors’ financial objectives with their concerns about Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues” and this definition is used in the indicator. Data on SRI collected by Eurosif are based on self-reporting by asset managers and self-managed asset owners. SRI are categorised into two main segments, ‘core’ and ‘broad’, which refer to the criteria used by investors. This graph shows the growth in Core SRI. The number of countries surveyed has increased from year to year. The breakdown according to first reporting year shown here allows the growth in Core SRI within countries to be differentiated from growth in reported Core SRI resutling from the growth in number of countries surveyed.
