How can we seek to address social and racial inequities?

A Message from Quintin E. Primo III, Chairman of the Board and JoAnn Hanson, President & CEO of CIG

How can we seek to address social and racial inequities?

By taking steps with one of the most potent forces in the world – Money.

The Episcopal Church has a long history of outreach to all members of our communities with programs to address civil rights, as well as key concerns such as employment, healthcare, and education.

Your Episcopal endowment can achieve a Triple Bottom Line – financial, social and environmental through your investment choices.

Companies in the first quartile for gender and racial equality are more likely to have above average profitability. Companies that prioritize positive treatment of their workers have outperformed both during the Covid crisis and over the past five years.

The Church Investment Group (CIG) works with Episcopal endowments to adopt Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) Investing where strong financial performance also produces social and environmental impact.

CIG works on the “S” in ESG directly through our Episcopal endowments’ investment choices and through corporate engagement with the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR) and Principles of Responsible Investing (PRI).
