Abstract

This paper addresses the implementation of Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) in the investment process. SRI covers a broad range of investment strategies, with different implications for the role of trustees and portfolio managers. We argue that a clear distinction needs to be made between ethical based, investment driven and value-ensuring objectives in SRI. This distinction effectively enables trustees and investors to address and implement the SRI strategies, and assess the added value in the investment process.
