Keep on investing

Socially responsible investments (SRI) are often hailed as a means to finally effect meaningful change on the environmental landscape. The rationale is that ethical screens on an investment universe should nudge corporate towards sustainable policies and actions as capital is channeled towards those that demonstrate an orientation towards environmental, social and governance factors.
Until the last decade, this class of investments was regarded as a niche and often marginal segment. But as larger pension funds begin to include ESG factors in their investment framework, sustainable investing may finally be moving mainstream.
