So­cially re­spon­si­ble investing

TagLast edit: 26 Apr 2021 20:10 UTC by EA Wiki assistant

Socially responsible investing is any investment strategy which considers both financial and social returns. This can include impact investing in for-profit companies with the intention of bringing about social good, divesting from companies which might generate harmful social outcomes, and influencing companies’ decisions towards better social outcomes by means of shareholder advocacy.
