Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Advocacy

Socially Responsible Investing

Socially responsible investing in the Episcopal Church began as a response to apartheid in South Africa. Today, through the Executive Council Committee on Corporate Social Responsibility, the Church examines companies’ records in regards to workplace equality, fair practices in the developing world, and environmental policy. Corporate social responsibility reinforces our values through business interactions and helps ensure our mission will continue through our investments.

Working together for justice.
