Socially responsible investing (SRI) is a growing approach to investing with an eye toward environmental, social and governance principles. It includes a concern with both what a company does and how it does it both internally and externally. At this point, the movement has grown to the point that so-called robo-advisors are getting in on the act. Nutmeg is one of the latest to launch an SRI portfolio range.
