The UNEP FI Asset Management Working Group (AMWG) invited Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, one of the world’s largest law firms, to consider whether institutional investors such as pension funds and insurance companies are legally permitted to integrate environmental, social and governance issues into their investment decision-making and ownership practices. The AMWG further asked how the law might be expected to evolve in this area. The study describes the legal framework for institutions in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, the UK and the US.
