Inspire Investing Announces Faith-Based ESG Investor Engagement Campaign For 2020

Inspire Investing released the details of their Faith-Based ESG Investor Engagement Campaign for 2020. Fifty-five publicly traded companies were selected for Inspire’s faith-based investor engagement efforts based on specific criterion to help improve their Inspire Impact Score™, a faith-based measure of environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics used by investors around the world to align investment portfolios to support biblical values.

“Our desire is to help companies to connect with and understand the issues that are important to faith-based investors so that they can take proactive steps to improve their Inspire Impact Score and attract interest from the large and growing faith-based investor population,” stated Robert Netzly, CEO of Inspire Investing. “We have worked with many companies over the years to help them better understand the concerns of faith-based investors and are excited to begin efforts with this year’s class.”

Selection Criterion

Fifty-five companies were selected for exhibiting strong scores across several important ESG issues, yet being at risk for having their Inspire Impact Score downgraded due to one specific diversity-related issue unique to each company that was identified within the past year

“These fifty-five companies are doing some great things and excel in numerous ESG categories, but like a color-blind man playing with a Rubix Cube, they are making some unintended mistakes,” commented Netzly. “We want to help these companies excel even more by sharing our unique insight into the faith-based ESG investor population and the issues that are important to this passionate and influential demographic.”

Investors can view Inspire Impact Scores and other ESG data for the selected companies, as well as tens of thousands of stocks, ETFs and mutual funds for free with a simple ticker symbol search at inspireinsight.com.
