the sustainable, responsible and ethical investment information hub

Recommended reading & viewing from our Partners

SRI Services partners with many of the UK’s most highly respected and capable investment organisations involved in sustainable, responsible and ethical investment.

This page brings together ‘recommended reading’ from our partners  as well as videos from our recent events and related links (all of which would/should count as unstructured CPD).

These links will help financial services intermediaries to gain a better understanding of the key issues that shape this sector – and drive both stock selection and stewardship activity.

The overarching aim of these resources is to empower intermediaries and others to help ‘shift the dial’…  and to help you to prepare for client conversations and likely regulatory changes.
