Minneapolis, MN, November 16, 2020 – North Sky Capital is pleased to sponsor one of the most comprehensive reports on sustainable and impact investing in the United States—the US SIF Foundation’s biennial Report on US Sustainable and Impact Investing Trends, which was released earlier today. The 2020 Trends Report found that the total US-domiciled assets under management using sustainable investing strategies grew from $12.0 trillion at the start of 2018 to $17.1 trillion at the start of 2020, an increase of 42 percent. This represents 33 percent – or 1 in 3 dollars – of the total US assets under professional management.
Since 1995, when the US SIF Foundation first measured the size of the US sustainable investment universe at $639 billion, assets have increased more than 25-fold, a compound annual growth rate of 14 percent.
The report provides data on the US asset management firms and institutional asset owners using sustainable investment strategies and examines the environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues they consider in managing their portfolios.

“As veterans in the impact investing industry, it has been exciting to see how both technological innovations and increased investor demand are driving the industry’s rapid momentum,” said North Sky Capital Head of Investor Relations Gretchen Postula. “We’re proud to support the US SIF’s Report on Sustainable and Impact Investing Trends and their work to provide insight on these developments.”
