Abstract

This report focuses on government initiatives on Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) at the national level of all EU Member States. SRI is a concept that combines investors' financial objectives with their concerns about social, environmental and ethical (SEE) issues (Eurosif, 2006). The study supports a structured exchange among the members of the High-Level Group (HLG) on CSR. DG Employment and Social Affairs (Tender No VT/2005/063) commis-sioned the research for this report, and it comprises the following four parts: Part I: Introduction to SRI in Europe, including an overview of rating methods used in the context of CSR/SRI; Part II: Survey among public administrators on national SRI initiatives in EU Member States, including a description of interesting SRI initiatives; Part III: Survey of SRI experts from the financial services sector across Europe about what they expect from governments; Part IV: Synthesis of the results of the two surveys.
