First Steps

Many Christian investment bodies, along with the Ecumenical Council for Corporate Responsibility, believe that any faith group investing directly in companies has a theological and moral duty to monitor the policies and practice of that company and to raise its concerns.

This means going beyond a review of what a company says about itself to being aware of reports on the company from third parties, including regulatory authorities, the media and NGOs.
