The term SRI, socially responsible investment, refers to an approach that aims to reconcile economic performance with social and environmental impact by investing in companies that contribute to sustainable development, irrespective of their sector of business.
By influencing the governance and conduct of stakeholders, SRI promotes a responsible economy.
The SRI range covers these two categories:
