Socially responsible investing (SRI) has been very successful over the last decade in many countries. In German speaking countries SRI started at the beginning of the nineties with very modest growth rates and turned into a recognised part of the financial industry with double digit growth rates from 2002 onwards.
While the SRI financial industry is busy to make a profitable business and to cope with its enormous growth rates. SÜDWIND persists in asking: “What social and ecological changes does SRI bring about?” As an institute working on development issues, we concentrate this question on the wellbeing of disadvantaged people in developing and emerging countries. Here we ask: “What beneficial effects does SRI have for these people?”
