Socially Responsible Investing
  • Magali Delmas

What is Socially Responsible Investing (SRI)?
  • Integrating personal values and societal concerns
    with investment decisions
  • Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) is an
    investment process that considers social and
    environmental consequences of investments, both
    positive and negative, within the context of
    rigorous financial analysis.
  • Social investors include individuals and
    institutions such as corporations, universities,
    hospitals, foundations, insurance companies,
    pension funds, nonprofit organizations, churches
    and synagogues.

Content and Method
  • Three core SRI strategies measured
  • Social and Environmental Screening
  • Shareholder Advocacy
  • Community Investing

  • Inclusion or exclusion of corporate securities in
    investment portfolios based on social or
    environmental criteria. Socially concerned
    investors generally seek to own profitable
    companies with respectable employee relations,
    strong records of community involvement,
    excellent environmental impact policies and
    practices, respect for human rights around the
    world, and safe and useful products.

    clarify open points arising from the analysis of
    the questionnaire and company documents.

  • Opportunities and Risks Assess the opportunities
    and risks deriving from economic, environmental
    and social dimensions of each of the eligible
    companies in the DJSI investable stocks universe.
  • Diversifying Information Sources For each
    company, the input sources of information for the
    Corporate Sustainability Assessment consist of
    the responses to the Corporate Sustainability
    Assessment Questionnaire, submitted
    documentation, policies and reports, publicly
    available information and analyst's direct
    contact with companies.
  • Verification To ensure quality and objectivity
    an external audit and internal quality assurance
    procedures, such as crosschecking of information
    sources are used to monitor and maintain the
    accuracy of the input data, assessment procedures
    and results.
