I founded Sarah Cleveland Consulting in 2011 to help mainstream sustainable investment. This means shifting the focus of what is considered smart institutional investment. Classical smart institutional investment centers on maximizing risk-adjusted return without regard to impact.
Today, smart institutional investment is based on investors:
- looking forward,
- assessing impact, and
- embedding sustainable investment in decision making.
I am an independent investment consultant providing communication, education and research services. Previously I advised institutional investors on investment strategy, implementation and ongoing monitoring. [download bio] My experience includes:

- Active within sustainable investment industry since 2003
I collaborate with an extensive network in the legal, investment, consultant and investor communities to provide a wide range of services from many experts in their fields.
