We, the member organizations of the Tri-State Coalition for Responsible Investment, recognize that “economic life raises social and moral questions for each of us and for society as a whole.” (Economic Justice for All, US Catholic Bishops Pastoral Letter, 1986). In making decisions about managing resources and investments, we view the local and global economies not only in terms of production and distribution, but also by their effects on the environment and the dignity of the human person.
We use our resources to work for justice in and through economic structures on behalf of the earth and her people. As religious investors we take seriously our responsibility as shareholders to hold our companies accountable to social and ethical concerns. We work to raise the economic literacy of ourselves, our constituents and other stakeholders as we participate in strategies for systemic change.
