      By Calvert Institute for Responsible Investing

      Washington - Fully integrated ESG research has always been the foundation of Calvert's investment approach. Our team utilizes a proprietary process designed to systematically maximize the value of ESG factors within fundamental evaluation, including traditional financial information. In addition, we conduct and publish our research, either internally produced or in conjunction with academic and industry partners, as part of the Calvert Institute for Responsible Investing. The Institute's mission is to catalyze positive change through our research and the sum of our actions.

      As part of this mission, Calvert has sponsored the Moskowitz Prize at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Business. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the award, which recognizes outstanding research on sustainable and responsible investing and the financial implications of responsible business practices in capital markets. Calvert has sponsored the prize since its inception, and this year's support comes via the Calvert Institute.

      This year, the prize was awarded to "The Real Effects of Environmental Activism," authored by Lakshmi Naaraayanan and Varun Sharma of the London Business School, Kunal Sachdeva of Rice University's Jones Graduate School of Business.

      Bottom line: Calvert is proud to contribute to the outstanding original research that the competition encourages. Our commitment is in alignment with our goal of promoting responsible investment research and academic study more broadly. Please join us in congratulating the winners and all participants involved.
