Abstract

Socially responsible investment or investing (SRI) is the practice of integrating social, environmental and ethical (SEE) considerations into investment decisions. In particular, SRI refers to the addition of SEE criteria to conventional financial criteria in the selection and management of portfolios of shares (stocks) of companies listed on stock markets. SR investors care not only about the size of their prospective financial return and the risk attached to it, but also about its source – the nature of the company’s products and services or how it does business. ‘[I]t matters where the money comes from’ (Lewis, 2002: p4)
