Responsible investment is defined by EUROSIF as "any type of investment process that combines investors’ financial objectives with their concerns about Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues".
The source adds further comments about positive screening selection strategies: "Funds which use a positive screening to select their investments: this includes either a best-in-class approach (investment in a portfolio of companies screened on their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) policies and performance) or an engagement approach (funds which ‘engage’ with companies in their portfolio to encourage them to improve their ESG performance)."
