Sustainable investing shift
Chicago Tribune: Today, people who want to invest in companies that align with their social and religious beliefs have more options to do so. Some companies are promoting their track records as good corporate citizens because they see a financial reason to do so, said Chris Laszlo, associate professor of organizational behavior. “Leading companies are starting to look at sustainability as a smart business model. Some of them are not labeling it (as such), but they see this as a way to reduce risk, whether it’s regulatory risk or environmental risk,” he said.
