"It's not just a 'nice to have,' but it can affect their ability to retain staff," said Alsegaf.

Member Companies in the News

Aramark released its 2021 Be Well. Do Well. Impact Report, a significantly expanded version of its annual sustainability report that highlights processes to manage key environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues, and progress toward its sustainability goals. The report includes updates across the board on sustainability, including employee engagement, community impact, and diversity, equity, and inclusion. On the planet side, Aramark is reducing greenhouse gas emissions and committed to setting an enterprise-wide science-based target among other key performance metrics.

JPMorgan Chase's asset management arm has created a new private equity team to focus on sustainable investments, the bank's latest move to align its activities with its climate-change commitments. With an investment of up to $150 million, the team will target growth-stage private companies that build solutions related to climate adaptation and resource efficiency for various industries. The bank said it has hired Tanya Barnes, who previously headed Blackstone Inc's impact investing platform, to jointly manage the new team with Osei Van Horne who has been leading J.P. Morgan Asset Management's climate-focused growth equity investment practice since May last year.

Vanguard will expand its ESG lineup with a positive impact stock fund. The company filed an initial registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to introduce Vanguard Baillie Gifford Global Positive Impact Stock Fund, which is designed to meet the needs of investors seeking actively managed global equity returns along with measurable impact on environmental and social challenges. Vanguard believes an active approach to impact investing enables skilled managers to better navigate the complexities of identifying companies driving positive change and build a portfolio with the potential to deliver on both excess return and impact objectives.


Verizon continues to be a leading corporate buyer of U.S. renewable energy, announcing seven new Renewable Energy Purchase Agreements for an aggregate of approximately 910 megawatts of projected renewable energy capacity. These agreements position the company to achieve its goal to source or generate renewable energy equivalent to 50% of its total annual electrical consumption by 2025, and help support Citizen Verizon, the company’s responsible business plan for economic, environmental, and social advancement.
