Even if we are still unable to measure it precisely, SRI labelled funds have a positive impact on sustainable development. They have to prove this impact by releasing indicators about the performance of the companies they fund in the fields of environment, social economy, management or human rights. Check the indicators chosen by the labelled fund to see if they match your objective.
SRI thematic labelled funds focus on precise sectors and make a concrete difference in the field they invest in. They target companies working in a defined sector and following environmental, social and management criteria. For instance, a labelled fund specialized in the environment will directly impact water supplies, renewable energies, or the fight against climate change. Once again, look at the indicators chosen by the fund.
