United Church Funds, a leading provider of investment management to churches and faith-based organizations, commends SunTrust Bank for its decision to stop future financing of the private prison and detention industries.
UCF today announced the launch of the Just World Fund, a fixed income impact fund that will enable churches and faith-based organizations to leverage their investable assets to address global economic justice, fair housing, human rights to water and nutrition, and solutions for environmental security.
UCF is proud to be a supporter of the Paris Pledge for Action (L’Appel de Paris), an initiative joining over 100 parties with more than US$ 10 trillion in assets under management sending a clear indication of a commitment to a transition to a low-carbon economy.
UCF was one of only a handful of US co-filers on both the BP and Shell resolutions. The Aiming for A investor coalition urges fossil fuel companies to achieve the highest level of assessment by the Carbon Disclosure Project.
Katie McCloskey, UCF’s Director of Social Responsibility, joined other faith-based investors in an interview with Faith and Investing: Rediscovering the Soul of an Investment Revolution — the latest issue of Green Money.
