How can the obstacles to responsible investing be overcome? Despite some encouraging inroads made by the responsible investing (RI) community, significant barriers remain, says Darlene Himick, assistant professor at the Telfer School of Management, who recently considered RI with a focus on pension plan sponsors. She and Sophie Audousset-Coulier of Concordia University analyzed the practices of evaluating and monitoring asset performance among 60 public pension funds in Canada to determine how they may enable, or interfere with, the adoption and implementation of responsible investing.
