A provider of research and news about socially responsible investing announced this week that it has published a new guide aimed at helping institutional investors integrate social criteria into their investment strategies.
"Our research illustrates that any institution can implement sustainable and responsible investing without abrogating its fiduciary responsibilities," said Jay Falk, president of SRI World Group. Vermont-based SRI World Group publishes SocialFunds.com , CSRWire , SRINews.com and iShareowner.com . The company says the guide is the first effort in a new publishing enterprise that will yield more publications. The "Sustainable and Responsible Investment Strategy Guide for Fiduciaries and Institutional Investors," published by SRI World, is targeted at universities, pension funds, foundations and religious organizations. The book offers strategies for identifying risk and market opportunities while ensuring that investments have social and environmental benefits, the company said.
