Socially Responsible Investing

Vancity Investment Management (VCIM) incorporates socially responsible investing (SRI) criteria incorporating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors as a constraint within the investment process. We are also a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment. We believe that companies with socially responsible corporate behavior are more likely to achieve superior investment returns for shareholders over the long term, and with less risk. Our fundamental research includes an assessment of each company’s impact on the environment, the community and of its labour practices.
