ESG investments may not directly advance the Fund’s mission, but are proactively screened for Environmental, Social, and Governance criteria to ensure they reflect our philanthropic vision.
While ESG criteria may differ, they can include factors such as carbon emissions, land use, labor management, health risk, board diversity, and financial transparency. Recognizing the growing attention to and relevance of the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the RBF has elected to use the SDGs as a standard for categorizing ESG and impact investment metrics [PDF].
