Walden Asset Management is the sustainable, responsible, and impact (“SRI”) investment practice of Boston Trust & Investment Management Company, an employee-owned firm and UN PRI signatory. Our firm has provided investment management and fiduciary services to individual and institutional investors since 1974.
Walden is widely recognized for its decades-long leadership in environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) investing and active ownership. We believe that companies protect and enhance their long-term profitability if they integrate responsible behavior into the fabric of their business practices. We incorporate ESG analysis into the investment decision-making process across all of our investment strategies. As active owners, we engage companies in direct dialogue on ESG issues, sponsor shareholder proposals, vote proxies, and advocate at the public policy level to strengthen corporate responsibility and accountability. We invite you to read about some of the notable milestones in our history here.
