Deloitte expects that an estimated 200 new funds in the United States with an ESG investment mandate are likely to launch over the next three years, more than doubling the activity from the previous three years.

Deloitte expects that the uptick in ESG adoption will lead to a growth cycle for technology companies that can offer ESG ratings and other metrics services. In all, the report forecasts that ESG assets should continue to grow at a 16 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR), totaling almost US$35 trillion by 2025. Flows into ESG funds are already on the rise. Assets allocated to sustainable funds reached US$8.9 billion through the first six months of 2019, compared to US$5.5 billion in all of 2018.
