This paper examines the way new investor led collaborative initiatives are impacting on the integration of ESG information into mainstream investment processes and their potential to influence the standard valuation and investment practices of global fund managers. The objective is to identify how different approaches –be it collaborative initiatives, research platforms or incentive systems–contribute to the evolution of conventional investment practices and the integration of ESG information into the long-term shareholder value of investee companies.
