Endowments: Considering Environment, Sustainability and Governance (ESG) Factors

Category: Environmental Sustainability

Endowments are unique to institutions including museums.  And today, museums are no longer limited to achieving missions through programming alone. Increasingly, investment committees look to their sizable endowments to affect social change by investing in companies that align with their values. The public and donors are also demanding more transparency from organizations they support. This webinar will address what goes into constructing a portfolio considering environment, social, and governance (ESG) factors and provide you with the background, perspective, and knowledge to begin this conversation in your museum.  New tools within the investment industry now allow for a robust and verifiable comparison of social impact investing with traditional investment strategies and approaches.  As with Diversity Equity Inclusion (DEI) initiatives, the corporate sector has also led in ESG reporting. Museum trustees from the corporate world can be quite versed in ESG trends.  This vocabulary is invaluable for both museum staff and leadership.
