About us

The Ethical Investment Advisory Group (EIAG) supports the Church of England's national investing bodies on ethical investment - the Church Commissioners, the Church of England Pensions Board and the CBF Church of England funds managed by CCLA.

The role of the EIAG and its Secretariat is to:

  • Advise the investing bodies on ethical investment policies
  • Engage with companies on ethical issues on behalf of the investing bodies
  • Oversee proxy voting at company general meetings on behalf of the Church Commissioners and the Church of England Pensions Board

The EIAG is a member of UK Sustainable Investment and Finance (UKSIF).  The EIAG Secretariat supports the Church Commissioners and Church of England Pensions Board in their participation in the activities of the Church Investors Group, the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment, the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change and CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project).

The EIAG's members include representatives of General Synod, the Archbishops' Council, the Council for Mission and Public Affairs, the investing bodies and co-opted members.  There is a rich mix of theological, Church, investment and business experience.

The EIAG is chaired by James Featherby.

 

The EIAG Annual Review 2013/14 is available here.
