Socially Responsible Investment
In the present decade, socially responsible investment (SRI) has grown at a faster rate than the broader universe of all investment assets under professional management in the U.S. and Europe. Nonetheless, it should be noted that, from the perspective of TJSGA, this does not mean whatsoever that a growing cadre of socially conscientious investors is emerging. In fact, there is a completely arbitrary use of the term socially responsible investment. Indeed, the criteria and specific standards used by so-called "socially responsible investors" are not by any means comprehensive nor homogenous. There is a wide array of different criteria and none truly address the issue of requiring companies to pay a living wage based on "equal pay for equal work of equal value", as TLWNSI argues. Most SRI groups do not even address the issue of the payment of wages worthy of human dignity.
In this case, rather than focusing on one SRI organisation or SRI research and rating service, TJSGA has chosen to list below some of these entities with their links to some of the resources available for so-called SRI.
