About ShareAction

Our vision is a world where ordinary savers and institutional investors work together to ensure our communities and environment are safe and sustainable for all.

Our mission is to unleash the positive potential of the mainstream investment system. To do this:

We’re building a movement for change in our investment system by working with people inside and outside the industry to challenge the status quo;

We’re unlocking the positive potential of the investment system by working with large and small investors to change unsustainable corporate practices;

We’re reforming the investment system by advocating for change in the policies, governance, and incentives that drive behaviours in the investment industry.

What is responsible investment?

Responsible investment is an investment strategy which integrates environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into investment analysis and decisions. It recognises that ESG factors can have an impact on the financial value of an investment and also that investments have an impact on the world around us. A responsible approach to investment recognises that long-term prosperity requires a move away from short-term profit as the only definition of value.
