Is SRI beneficial for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME)?

The SRI label does not impose rules on the size of the company the fund invests in. If they are generally big listed companies, it is also possible to invest in SMEs listed or unlisted. If those entities are respecting the financial, environmental, social and management criteria (ESM criteria), they qualify for the labelled funds. SRI is evidently relevant for SMEs. Today, the number of investments made in SMEs remain quite low, but the opposite trend is gaining more and more weight.
