Sustainability Briefing – 3Q 2022

July 15, 2022 | Linsey Schoemehl Payne, Chief Compliance Officer, Managing Partner, Colin Cheaney, Senior Performance Analyst

Sustainable investing is not new to Marquette. Ranging from mission-driven screening to minority-owned investment manager utilization, Marquette has been partnering with clients for over thirty years to implement investment strategies that address a myriad of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) themes. But something has shifted over the last few years, bringing ESG to the forefront of client discussions and manager presentation decks. To help clients navigate this evolving space, we will be sharing quarterly briefings that highlight trending topics surrounding sustainable investing.

In this edition:

  • Greenwashing and increased regulatory scrutiny by the SEC
  • ESG and sustainability-themed ETF flows
  • The SEC’s recent proposed rule, File No. S7-10-22: The Enhancement and Standardization of Climate-Related Disclosures for Investors
  • Business impact of increasing interest and attention to ESG themes:
    • Electric vehicle adoption
    • Unionization efforts
    • ESG disclosures by corporate issuers
