What is Socially Responsible Investing?

Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) normally focuses on selecting investments where, in addition to the normal financial criteria, consideration is also given to how seriously a company takes its responsibilities in mitigating the negative aspects its business activities may have on the wider community and environment.

The most common methodology for SRI is to utilise a negative screening process which avoids certain companies or industries that are assessed as having a negative impact on society. At an industry level, this often rules out industries associated with gambling, alcohol, armaments and tobacco.
