Socially Responsible Investment

Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) is the area of investment activity which includes strategies that combine social and/or environmental benefits with financial results.

The SRI stocks investors’ decisions therefore take into account their social, ethical, ecological and economic concerns. However, the existing empirical evidence about the performance of SRI stocks on international markets is somewhat mixed, so the new studies aim to provide more findings about the link between corporate social responsibility and finacial performance.

Recent research projects  include:

Professor Janusz Brzeszczyński: Investment Performance of SRI Stocks

This project involved analysis of the performance of SRI stocks from the ‘Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World’ list traded at the London Stock Exchange (LSE).

Publication:

Brzeszczyński, J. and McIntosh, G. (2014). ‘Performance of SRI Portfolios in the UK Stock Market. ’ Journal of Business Ethics 120:3,  335 - 362.
