A New Era for Socially Responsible Investing and Fiduciary Obligations

Socially responsible investing (SRI) is a rapidly growing trend in markets around the world. This sustainable, responsible, impact investing model affords companies the opportunity to ensure that their investments align with their mission and values and also facilitate the global movement towards an environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive economy. SRI models involve ESG (environmental, social and governance) integration, investment screening, shareholder advocacy, sustainably themed investments and impact investing.
