Socially Responsible Investment
Socially responsible companies balance business concerns like revenue and profit with social concerns like the environment, community benefits, and sustainability. Likewise, socially responsible investing considers both financial return and social/environmental contribution to bring about a positive change.
It sounds like an admirable approach—growing wealth while doing good—but there are many complex variables, and you don’t always have the time to thoroughly investigate an organization’s operations and business impact to ensure they really are operating sustainably and in accordance with their stated ethics.
To aid those who want to make socially responsible investment choices, Barrons has done the due diligence and offers this annual list of The 100 most sustainable companies.
