The US Episcopal Church to advocate an ESG ‘theology of money’

The Episcopal Church, the US member of the Anglican Communion, has agreed to appoint a Task Force on the Theology of Money to examine responsible investment practices consistent with its faith and mission. A number of resolutions aimed at shaping the way the Church’s entities manage their assets were agreed at the 79th General Convention, the governing body that meets every three years, which was held in Texas in July. The Theology of Money resolution directs the Task Force, whose members will be appointed in due course, to examine the following three elements of responsible investing: “Applying ethical guidelines in investing selection and management, shareholder activism, and investing for responsible social and environmental outcomes as well as financial returns.”
