Financial Return and Social Good.
Socially responsible investing (SRI), also known as sustainable, socially conscious, ethical or “green” investing, is an investment strategy that seeks to consider both financial return and social good.
Socially responsible investors encourage practices that promote environmental stewardship, consumer protection, human rights, and diversity. The areas of concern recognized by the SRI industry are often summarized as “ESG issues”: environment, social justice, and corporate governance.
