Shane Yonston, Principal Advisor at Impact Investors, will be speaking on Socially Responsible Investing at San Diego's Sierra Club offices next Wednesday evening.
Socially responsible investors encourage corporate practices that promote environmental stewardship, consumer protection, human rights, and diversity.
Some avoid businesses involved in alcohol, tobacco, gambling, pornography, weapons, fossil fuel production, and/or the military. The areas of concern recognized by the SRI industry are sometimes summarized as ESG issues: Environment, Social justice, and corporate Governance.
During the presentation, Yonston will discuss the history of Socially Responsible Investing; describe the various tools such as shareholder advocacy, community investing, and portfolio screening; explore the recent growth in responsible investing; highlight performance and offer tools and resources as take-aways.
