About ShareAction

Our vision is of an investment system that is a force for good
– serving savers and communities, and protecting our environment for the long term.

We build a movement of people who want the investment system to be a force for good.

We unlock the potential of investments to have a positive impact on savers, communities and the environment.

We reform the rules of the system to make sure it serves these interests over the long term.

What is responsible investment?

Responsible investment is an investment strategy which seeks to generate both financial and sustainable value. It consists of a strategy that takes environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into account when undertaking analysis and making financial decisions. A responsible approach to investment recognises that long-term prosperity requires a move away from short-term profit as the only definition of value.
