    Doing Good While Doing Well: Impact Investing for a Sustainable Tomorrow, Featuring Meredith Block, MPA from Cathy Ford on Vimeo

    Sustainable investing is undergoing a transition from niche to mainstream. According to study by the Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment, from 2012 to 2014, total assets in investment funds that incorporate ESG factors grew from about $1 trillion to well over $4 trillion. Contrary to common belief, research indicates that the integration of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) elements into an investment discipline has been additive to returns. By emphasizing ESG criteria, sustainable investing seeks to enhance traditional financial analysis to identify strong investment opportunities, while simultaneously supporting positive ESG outcomes.

    With changing demographics and the more central role sustainability issues are taking in financial decisions, this brand of investing has seen a dramatic growth in assets and demand. Join Rockefeller & Co. (sub-advisor of the Touchstone Sustainability & Impact Equity Fund) to learn how investors can improve corporations for mutually beneficial ESG outcomes as well as financial performance.


    Meredith Block, MPA, is a Sustainability Analyst for Sustainability and Impact Investing Strategy and is responsible for the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) screening and research of stocks for Rockefeller & Co. Prior to joining Rockefeller & Co. in 2015, Meredith was the Director of Programs for Africa and Asia at the Blacksmith Institute, an international non-profit dedicated to mitigating the negative externalities of rapid industrialization in emerging markets. She has implemented projects with government, private sector and community stakeholders in over a dozen countries to reduce the environmental and human health impacts from industry and mining. She holds a B.A. in Environmental Politics and Globalization Theory from New York University and an MPA in Environmental Science and Policy from Columbia University in New York City.
