Anthony Serhan (below), Manager Director, Research Strategy, Asia Pacific of Morningstar talked about our Sustainability Investing Initiative. Sustainable Investing is values-based, value-driven, and impact-oriented. Investors, from institutional investors to mainstream, care about it more and more. Thus, Morningstar is launching a Sustainability rating to help investors think about sustainability and how they wish to see it reflected in their investments.
