Socially Responsible Investment (SRI)

In “socially responsible investment” funds, investment decisions are based on social, ethical and environmental criteria, in addition to traditional financial criteria. These criteria can involve deciding not to invest in certain sectors for example (e.g. arms, betting) or deciding to invest in companies that meet certain standards, particularly in social and environmental terms.
Certain products are subject to very precise regulation such as sustainable development savings accounts and solidarity funds offered as part of employee savings schemes.
