Calvert announces institute for ESG investing

Calvert Research has announced the launch of the Calvert Institute for Responsible Investing.

Calvert, a subsidiary of Eaton Vance, says the institute is aimed at promoting best practices in responsible investing and will mean that asset owners and investors in Europe and Asia will now have access to Calvert Institute’s work addressing topics such as environmental degradation, climate change, racial inequality and social injustice.

“We are thrilled to have this opportunity to contribute to the further development of responsible investing,” said Anne Matusewicz, a director of the Calvert Institute. “We want to help investors understand the role they can play in promoting positive change. Examining race and injustice, climate change and other critical issues will allow us to amplify voices that challenge the status quo based on research results and educate individuals and institutions at various stages of their responsible investment journey.”
