Millennials Drive Growth in Sustainable InvestingAug 9, 2017
A younger generation of investors, who overwhelmingly believe that their investment decisions can make an impact, is leading the sustainable investing charge.
Imagine a world in which investors and business view affordable healthcare or access to education as opportunities to open new markets, tap new demand and bring more people into the economic fold.
This podcast by Morgan Stanley’s Institute for Sustainable Investing and The Economist Intelligence Unit looks at the concept of inclusive growth — broad-based economic growth that benefits society and is sustainable over time. Host Joseph Lake of The Economist Intelligence Unit talks with Audrey Choi, Morgan Stanley’s Chief Sustainability Officer and Chief Marketing Officer, who has spent years at the forefront of efforts to take sustainable investing mainstream. She sees inclusive growth as a way to tackle growing social and economic disparities while boosting economic growth and generating attractive returns. Plus, you’ll hear from Arun Sundararajan, a professor at the New York University Stern School of Business, who thinks business can be a critical agent of social change, and not just an accumulator of capital.
