Guide to Investment and Engaging
Investment and Engaging with Companies: A Guide for Faith Communities
ECCR's user-friendly 30-page Guide aims to support church members, faith communities and other responsible investors in influencing companies on the basis of Christian and ethical values. Co-sponsored by responsible investment specialists EIRIS and Ethical Screening, the Guide explains how invested funds provide opportunities for dialogue with companies and fund managers. Sections are included on the relationship between faith, values and finance; the 'business case' for corporate responsibility; why faith groups need to invest responsibly; how churches hold their funds; and the practical do's and don'ts of dialogue and engagement.
