Facilities Project Coordinator
Does the institution offer a socially responsible investment option for retirement plans?:
A brief description of the socially responsible investment option for retirement plans:
"TIAA-CREF: TIAA-CREF has a long-standing commitment to socially responsible investing (SRI) that is consistent with our nonprofit heritage and unwavering mission to serve those who serve the greater good.
Our SRI program combines three complementary strategies: social screening, shareholder advocacy and community investing. This globally integrated approach seeks to influence positive social change in the countries and communities in which we invest while helping our clients achieve their goal of a safe and secure retirement.
GOAL: Provide competitive returns aligned with investors' values through comprehensively screened investment options that give special consideration to companies’ environmental, social and governance (ESG) records
GOAL: Promote long-term investment value by exercising our shareholder rights to influence the ESG policies of the companies in which we invest across the entire TIAA-CREF portfolio – not just in our socially screened offerings
GOAL: Deliver a combination of competitive returns and positive social impact through focused investment programs."
