About our Business
BlackRock Sustainable Investing (BSI) unifies the firm’s sustainable investment strategies onto a single platform and partners with our global investment and distribution teams to develop scalable and innovative solutions ranging from screens and environmental social governance (ESG) strategies to Impact Investing.
Launched in 2015, our BSI platform provides investors with a range of strategies across asset classes, investment vehicles and impact profiles.
With over $725 billion in sustainable assets under management, BlackRock leverages our differentiated investment platform, proprietary technology, data analytics, deep ESG expertise and culture of innovation to offer sustainable solutions to our clients.
Today, BSI consists of 40 people globally, led by Paul Bodnar, who are focused on identifying drivers of long-term returns associated with environmental, social and governance issues, integrating them throughout BlackRock's investment processes, and creating innovative investment solutions that address clients' environmental and social objectives alongside their financial objectives.
