What is “socially responsible investing”?

Definitions for socially responsible investing vary, depending on who you ask. Typically the strategy for socially responsible investment is best defined by what it excludes rather than what it includes. The category’s largest funds avoid investments in particular industries that fail tests for social responsibility.

Here at NC State, socially responsible investing (SRI) is an investment approach that considers environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in portfolio selection and management.
