According to the latest report from the US SIF Foundation, sustainable, responsible, and impact (SRI) investing assets have expanded to $8.72 trillion in the US, up 33% since 2014. This equates to one in five dollars invested under professional management. The full reports explains this growth, in addition to exploring the top issues concerning money managers and their clients.

The Trends Report, now in its 11th year of publication, is a snapshot of US-domiciled assets engaged in sustainable, responsible, and impact (SRI) strategies at year-end 2015. The report measures two SRI strategies: (1) ESG incorporation, and (2) Filing shareholder resolutions on ESG issues.

The report shows a 33% growth over the past two years, and a 14-fold increase since 1995.
