Responsible investing covers a number of areas including, but not exclusive to, sustainable, socially conscious, environmentally responsible or ethical businesses. Funds in this category may invest in any asset class and their level of ‘responsibility’ will vary. Some funds will use negative screens, which means they avoid certain investments. Some will have positive screens, meaning they look for, and encourage, best practice. Others will have a combination of both. Some funds will also look instead to invest back into the region or asset class for the benefit of local people and business development.
