Does the institution have a policy, practice or directive to consider the social and/or environmental impacts of investment decisions, in addition to financial considerations?:

A brief description of the sustainable investment policy:

Cornell's practice for addressing constituent concerns relating to sustainability issues and endowment investments is to bring those issues to the attention of the CFO, who will evaluate the concern and if appropriate, bring it to the attention of the President. The President will then form a University ad hoc group to review the issue and then he will bring forward the recommendations of that group to the Investment Committee. The Executive Committee, together with Cornell University senior staff will be responsible for setting policy regarding socially responsible investing issues and will present that policy to the Investment Committee.
