Corporate Social Responsibility

What is socially responsible investing?

According to the Responsible Investment Association of Canada (RIA), responsible investment (RI) “is the integration of environmental, social and governance factors (ESG) into the selection and management of investments. There is growing evidence that RI reduces risk and leads to superior long-term financial returns.”

In recent years, responsible investment has come to encompass:

  • Ethical investing
  • Socially responsible investing
  • Sustainable investing
  • Green investing
  • Community investing
  • Mission-based investing
  • And more recently, impact investing.
