CalSTRS, alongside Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund and the UK’s Universities Superannuation Scheme, released a statement emphasizing the importance of long-term, sustainable growth.

Ailman. “We urge our partners and the companies in which we invest to improve their disclosures and enhance their integration of environmental, social and governance factors into their decision-making processes.”
