The US SIF Foundation's Trends Report conducted research on 530 institutional asset owners with $6.2 trillion in ESG assets, equivalent to 51 percent of the $12.01 trillion that money managers identified as institutional assets.

What about when you are heating your home on a cold winter night? We often take our lifestyle based on a convenient and abundant supply of energy for granted. We switch our appliances on; drive our cars, use computers and cellphones without giving it a second thought. We use energy every day because it’s essential to our modern way of life.
