Etica Sgr receives Special Mention from the jury of the 2013 Sustainable Investment Award.
The announcement was made on 12 November in Rome during the final day of Sustainable and Responsible (SRI) Investment Week, the biggest event on sustainable finance in Italy.
The reasons given for the special mention were:
“Etica has demonstrated that a clear value proposition, stated with complete transparency and great coherence, can meet with the favour of the markets and become a success story. Beginning from a niche position, Etica has earned itself a leadership role in Italy and takes an active part in the international debate.
For the above reasons, Etica represents a case of great interest, inspiring other investors to adopt a sustainable and responsible investment strategy.”
