TIIP today announced a series of enhancements to its Systems Aware Investing Launchpad (SAIL) and welcomed the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR) and the Intentional Endowments Network (IEN) to its growing list of investor groups adopting SAIL’s advanced system-level investing strategies.
SAIL, which was featured in Barron’s PENTA earlier this year, is an all-encompassing investment information platform for investors seeking to better address social and environmental risks and achieve greater impact. It is a first-of-its-kind, web-based, plug-and-play solution that guides investors in launching or refining their system-level investing approaches. The platform’s new features represent a significant leap forward for SAIL and are based on feedback from a variety of financial institutions that tested a beta version of the platform earlier this year.
“Partnering on the SAIL pilot program with TIIP will help our investor members amplify their pioneering work to engage the world’s largest companies on their social and environmental impacts,” said ICCR CEO Josh Zinner. “For five decades, our coalition, representing over 300 global institutional investors with more than $4 trillion in assets, has been at the forefront of the shareholder advocacy movement and this program will help our members steward their assets to better manage intergenerational, systemic risks.”
“IEN members—which represent over 200 endowments, foundations, outsourced CIO firms and investment consultants, investment managers, and nonprofit partners representing over $7 trillion in assets—have increasingly sought to address systemic risks like inequality, climate change and racial injustice as they threaten a thriving society,” said IEN Co-Founder and Executive Director Georges Dyer. “Partnering with TIIP, leaders of the system-level investing movement, will provide our members with access to a rich database of resources, tools, and best practices guidance for implementing system-level investing.”
