UC Investments considers environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) risk factors with the same weight as other material risk factors influencing investment decision making.  We consider ESG to be a process, not a product. Our Sustainable Investing Framework (pdf) delineates the ESG factors we consider in our analysis and the University of the California Board of Regents Investments Policy (retirement plan (pdf) and endowment pool (pdf)) formalizes our approach.

Our ESG Integration dashboard, shown below provides a snapshot of the most recent milestones along our sustainable investing journey. Dashboards for past quarters (pdf) are available as well.
