More than a quarter of U.S. assets under professional management used sustainable-investing strategies as of the beginning of 2018, a 38 percent increase from two years earlier, according to a new report.

Sustainable, responsible or impact-investments climbed by more than $3 trillion to hit almost $12 trillion, Washington-based Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment, known as US SIF, said Wednesday in a report. More asset managers built environmental, social and governance analysis into their investments, and more shunned firearms holdings, US SIF said.
