Do companies committed to sustainability represent good investment opportunities? Cary Krosinsky, head of corporate services at Trucost UK, thinks so. As he states in an interview with GreenBiz.com

We found that for the 1, 3 and 5 years leading up to the end of 2007, when looking at SRI funds with this positive, opportunity-focused sustainable investing methodology, that they consistently outperformed their mainstream index equivalents. When updating this study for a UN Principles of Responsible Investment academic paper in 2009, this still held true, both before, through and after the recent financial crisis of 2008 into 2009.

Carl is the author and co-editor, with Nick Robins of HSBC, of Sustainable Investing: The Art of Long Term Performance (Earthscan Publications, 2008), and has taught classes on investing and sustainability at Columbia University.
