You may have heard it called “green investing,” or “values-based investing,” but what do those terms mean? What is socially responsible investing? According to The Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment, sustainable, responsible, and impact investing (also called “SRI” or “socially responsible investing”) is “an investment discipline that considers environmental, social, and corporate governance criteria to generate long-term competitive financial returns and positive social impact.” Simply put, socially responsible investing seeks to help you grow your money while doing good.
Over the years, as investors have realized the impact they can have, socially responsible investing has increased. Total assets in sustainable investments grew from $12.0 trillion at the start of 2018 to $17.1 trillion at the start of 2020 and that’s before the challenges of the past year forced many investors to think even harder about where their money is going. As a result, more and more companies are understanding the need to align their policies in a more socially responsible way.
I believe the impact of your investments can be meaningful. You can make a difference.
