Socially responsible investment (SRI) or ethical investment is a phrase which covers diverse approaches to investment strategy. An ethical investment policy or SRI may involve looking for companies which demonstrate best practice in areas like environmental protection, employment, and human rights, or those whose businesses contribute directly to a cleaner environment or healthier society. Institutions in Oxford and Cambridge expect their managers to factor in the SRI implications in their investment decisions. By simply following the guidelines set out by the Charity Commissioners many colleges fulfill their SRI obligations.
