Members of the Global Sustainable Investment Alliance have been part of an informal network for years. Our work to create GSIA over the past year represents our shared interest in bringing our national and regional work to bear on global research, policy and other strategic efforts. At the same time, the ability to share information and best practices will allow each member of GSIA to benefit from each other’s work.

The members at US SIF are engaged in the global market and share a commitment to creating advanced sustainable investment markets in every region of the world. We are excited to deepen our work with our partners in the sustainable investment world and to create a more visible presence in international efforts.

The strength of the SIF’s is their local approach. After all, cultures, languages and legislation differ per country. Financial institutions and stakeholders meet and discuss sustainability policies and implementation on a national level. SIF’s provide a forum for this debate and encourage implementation of responsible investment. At the same time, our members operate and invest internationally. By creating this Alliance, the family of SIF’s provide a global basis to share best practices in their wide diversity of Sustainable Investment solutions, in order to advance both the debate and the implementation.
