Hard Proof: Social Responsibility Adds to Bottom Line

Are you still stuck in the old paradigm that acting ethically might hurt your bottom line? Think again. "Between 1995 and 2007, socially responsible investmanet assets expanded by 324 percent, sharply outpacing growth in the broader universe of investments, which increase by less than 260 percent over the same period. Social Investing is thriving as never before"*

"Even during the bust of the great recession, investing in socially responsible funds grew at a higher rate than ever"**

If you are a business owner or executive decision maker at a larger organization, keep this in mind. Doing the right thing not only allows you to sleep better at night, it adds more to the bottom line!
