FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Community Capital Management, Inc. (CCM), a leading fixed income impact investing manager, today announced that it has become a signatory to the United Nations-Supported Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI), enhancing its 18-year commitment to incorporating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria into its investment philosophy and processes.
The UN PRI is internationally recognized as the world's leading proponent of responsible investments. The principles, which are voluntary, aim to provide a framework for integrating ESG considerations into investment decision-making and ownership practices.

"As one of the largest U.S.-based fixed income impact investing managers, we are excited to participate in this globally recognized community, expanding our many commitments to partnerships with like-minded impact investing organizations."
"We are very pleased to welcome Community Capital Management as a new signatory," said PRI managing director Fiona Reynolds. "Their excellent track record of looking at the material risks around ESG issues and the impact these have on the investment decision making process makes them a natural fit for the PRI."
