Responsible Investing

Responsible Investing - Align your investments with your values.

Responsible investment (RI) is the integration of environmental, social and governance factors (ESG) into the selection and management of investments.

As a member of Community Savings , you have access to investment solutions* that focus on investing in companies that have a positive impact on the environment, treat their employees well and are well governed. You can invest in good companies. Evidence suggests that a comprehensive process of ESG integration is successful in achieving both financial and social value.**

71% of Canadian investors say it’s important for financial advisors to offer socially responsible investments to build strong client relationships.**

How does Responsible Investing align with you?

• You are concerned about environmental risks, such as issues in climate change, pollution and species extinction.

• You are concerned about social risks, including human rights, consumer rights and worker safety.

• You are concerned about governance risks and the way companies are run. Does the company operate transparently and accountably?

Responsible Investing focuses on making companies better corporate citizens, using the financial incentive of directed investments. RI is about making money while making a difference.
