What is responsible investment?

Responsible investment is an investment strategy which seeks to generate both financial and sustainable value. It consists of a strategy that takes environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into account when undertaking analysis and making financial decisions. A responsible approach to investment recognises that long-term prosperity requires a move away from short-term profit as the only definition of value.
