WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Dec. 12, 2017) – The California State Teachers’ Retirement System today announced that Pensions & Investments magazine has named it a Best Place to Work in Money Management for 2017. This year’s honor is the third CalSTRS has garnered—the only public pension plan to do so.
CalSTRS is an active participant in a variety of investor related organizations that are focused on sustainable issues, including Ceres and the Investor Network on Climate Risk.
Our commitment to be an active investor organization fosters our duty to protect and grow the assets that educators have entrusted to us. Accomplishing that means being good stewards of the businesses we invest in; with assurance they too are focused on risks that could impact their long-term value.
To assist in this effort, CalSTRS created an internal Green Initiative Task Force made up of representatives across all asset classes. Their mission is to manage risk and capture opportunity posed by sustainability considerations associated with climate change and other environmental issues.
Electronic privacy is crucial for the ongoing success of the Internet as a convenient means to provide customer service. Your personal information will be used only to conduct CalSTRS-related business.
