This book is about the infl uence of fi duciary law on the fi nancial economy and its environmental performance. It focuses on how fi duciary law affects responsible investing (RI) and investigates possible reforms that might shift fi nancial markets closer to sustainability – or ‘environmentally sustainable development’. Alongside the recent growth of institutional investment, fi duciary law has assumed an ever-increasing role in the fi nancial economy. Pension plans, insurance companies and other institutional investors that manage portfolios on behalf of millions of benefi ciaries have fi duciary or fiduciary-like obligations.
