Today, 15 new organizations joined Mercy Investment Services and five other Catholic organizations in committing to further expand the impact of their financial resources as signatories to the Catholic Impact Investing Collaborative Pledge. 

In 2019, Mercy Investment Services became one of the pledge’s first signatories. The pledge calls on Catholic institutions to align their investments with their mission by including investments with a positive impact in their portfolios. For Mercy Investment Services, this includes investments benefiting people and planet through the Environmental Solutions Fund, Mercy Partnership Fund, and equity and bond holdings dedicated to benefiting environmental or social outcomes, as well as our extensive activities in shareholder engagement, proxy voting, negative screens and environmental, social & governance investing.
