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.

The SRI label in brief
The SRI label is a tool for choosing sustainable and responsible investments. Created and supported by the Finance Ministry, the label goal is to increase the visibility of SRI products among savers in France and Europe. The SRI is an investment which aims at reconciling economic performance, social and environmental impact by financing the companies which contribute to the sustainable development in all the business sectors. The SRI label, issued to the term of a strict process of labelling led by independent bodies, constitutes a unique mark for the savers wishing to participate in a more sustainable economy.
