Socially Responsible Investing Video Series

To increase awareness of our socially responsible investing (SRI) efforts, we created a series of Q&A-style videos featuring Alan Snoddy, a Managing Director in the Church Pension Group’s (CPG) Investments Group, and the Rev. Canon Anne Mallonee, CPG’s Chief Ecclesiastical Officer. The videos are designed to highlight the role of SRI at CPG and how we have approached this type of investing for more than 15 years.

In the first video, Investing for Positive Impact, Alan provides an overview of SRI at CPG, the types of socially responsible investments we consider, and the positive social impact we have had through our investments. In the second video, The Selection Process, Alan explains how CPG’s Investments Group identifies SRI opportunities and measures their success, as well as the way one particular investment helped a community in India improve the lives of area farmers. In the last video, Looking Ahead, Alan offers his views on the future of SRI, opportunities in the sustainable infrastructure market, and CPG’s efforts to work with other faith-based organizations to find new investments.

We invite you to view these videos, which can be accessed at www.cpg/org/SRI, and we encourage you to share them on your social networks.

CPG remains committed to SRI and currently has socially responsible investments in 23 countries totaling more than $900 million. We have made an intentional effort for more than 15 years to have a positive influence in the world through our SRI efforts while upholding our fiduciary duty to not compromise our investment returns, which enables us to provide financial security in retirement to our participants. Our SRI portfolio includes women- and minority-owned firms; economically targeted initiatives, including urban redevelopment, affordable housing, sustainable agriculture, and microfinance; and environmental-related programs that invest in sustainable forestry, clean technology, and green buildings.
