“We (1) outline the history of the concept, (2) concisely define SRI and related terms, (3) propose a trinomial sustainability indicator framework (the Cambridge SRI indicator framework) for conceptualisation, and (4) use this framework to provide a structured overview of sustainability indicators for SRIs.”
[COMMENTARY] In this paper, the researchers attempt to define socially responsible and sustainable investing by investigating a wide range of studies on the subject. Furthermore, they try to ascertain what are the best measurement indicators. The authors argue that without such definitions research into performance, etc., is non-comparable.
