ClearBridge Investments named a Responsible Investment Leader by RIAA

ClearBridge Investments called out as Responsible Investment Leader

ClearBridge Investments has been named a Responsible Investment Leader by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA) in its landmark annual study launched today. This recognises our commitment to responsible investing and attributes as an investment manager.

The Responsible Investment Benchmark Report Australia 2022 shows the number of Australian assets managed using a rigorous, leading approach to responsible investment has hit a record value of $1.54 trillion, now accounting for 43% of the total market.

The report, researched in collaboration with EY, also shows a record 45% of investment managers are holding companies to account on matters relating to environmental and social issues, and reporting back to investors on the outcomes achieved. This number has more than doubled in the past two years, with only 21% of investment managers engaging in such activity in 2019.

A record 74 investment managers out of 140 have been identified as Responsible Investment Leaders, who explicitly and systematically consider ESG factors in the allocation of capital, and are decidedly transparent, reporting publicly not just on their activities to improve environmental and social sustainability, but also the outcomes they achieve.
