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 the negative screening selection process: "Funds use a multiple-exclusion approach when selecting investments (e.g. avoiding tobacco or gambling- related securities) or a normative approach (adherence to internationally-recognised standards and principles)."
