Pathway to Responsible Investing



At Mercer, we define responsible investment (RI) as an investment approach that includes environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors and broader systemic issues — for example, climate change and sustainable development — along with active ownership (stewardship). Yet, responsible investment can be confusing for investors and it can be difficult to know where to start and what should be the priority.





We are proud to introduce Mercer’s Responsible Investment Pathway to guide investors through four steps as your investment approach from Beliefs, Policy, Process, and of course, implementation in the Portfolio.



To learn more, please see our ABC of ESG paper that provides further detail on the four key ESG approaches, summarised below:



At Mercer, we recommend taking the step-by-step Responsible Investment Pathway to incorporate these approaches into your investment process. The following outlines the core steps of that pathway over a three year journey.
