The Auburn Endowment Investment Committee does not yet make intentional sustainable investments. However the Committee has begun to consider this issue and produced the following statement:
The Auburn University Investment Committee, in consultation with the investment consultant, will inquire into and monitor sustainable investment opportunities. As more creditable data and viable investment opportunities become available, the committee will consider ESG factors as part of the due diligence on potential investment managers. In addition, the committee, in concert with the investment consultant, will continue to monitor its current investment managers’ use of ESG factors in the investment process.
