Every two years, Eurosif publishes its European SRI Study – a landmark publication that provides the most comprehensive overview of the European market for Sustainable and Responsible Investment (SRI) and gives a good understanding of practices and trends across Europe. With a focus on current national research, different approaches, introducing key players and estimating market size, the Study provides “soft” predictions for future SRI trends. It is one of the few sources detailing the European SRI market both in investments and national trends.
In 2016, Eurosif published the 7th edition of the Study. This edition revealed double-digit growth for sustainable and responsible investment (SRI). The growth ranges from 30% for stewardship (Engagement & Voting) to 385% for Impact Investment. SRI is growing faster than the broad European investment market (25%) with retail investors returning to the market (up 549% since 2013).
