Responsible Investment and the Claim of Corporate Change

  • Elisa M. Zarbafi


As mentioned in the introduction, responsible investment is a widely discussed link between the stock market and CSR (Scholtens, 2006). It provides the mechanisms through which public shareholders can exert influence on corporate behaviour and is thus the focus of our study. We start this chapter by providing the reader with some terms and definitions relevant for the study of responsible investment, and giving insight into the history and the key actors involved. We proceed by identifying four different approaches of how to practice responsible investment, before we then clarify the link to CSR.
