“The Charity Commission has clearly taken into account the comments and concerns expressed by responsible investment specialists at the consultation stage.

We welcome the strong focus given to effective management of environmental, social and governance (ESG) risk within the guidance on financial investments. We welcome also the Commission’s recognition that ‘mixed motive’ investment is a significant and developing area.
