ESG Reporting Solutions
Sustainable Investing Framework
Our Sustainable Investing Framework includes six ways to incorporate sustainability into portfolios.
The framework isn’t a checklist; it’s more like a menu—what you choose depends on your appetite and taste. It provides a tool and a guide for users to evaluate existing strategies and find new ways to combine approaches to meet specific objectives.
Communicating with your clients requires more than just a one-size-fits-all approach. We’ve built our ESG reporting solutions on Morningstar’s foundational sustainable investing framework, which outlines the various paths investors can take to act on their sustainability objectives. Our reports are tailored to the nuanced motivations that make investing so personal.
