When you invest in the Domini Funds, you make a difference in the world.
The world we live in today was shaped by the investment decisions made by previous generations. Today’s socially responsible investors recognize this simple truth and use their investment dollars wisely, to create a better future for all.
To prove that socially responsible investing could make a difference, we had to convince more people to give it a try. But that wasn’t always easy. Some people believed that you just couldn’t make as much money our way.
This “conventional wisdom” was wrong. An investment approach that includes social and environmental standards — for example, avoiding tobacco companies and weapons manufacturers, and investing in companies that act with respect toward the environment, their employees, and the community — has produced competitive investment returns.
We work hard to find ways to make the world better. We use our stock funds to talk to the companies we own, discussing everything from global climate change to sweatshop issues to making products in a safer way. Gradually, companies are coming to understand what we already know — that they can improve their behavior and still make a profit. Meanwhile, our bond fund makes investments directly into underserved communities.
Through wise investments, responsible investors are making a difference. We have launched a movement that is, we believe, essential to the process of building a peaceful and just future.
You can commit yourself to being part of the solution, by investing in the Domini Funds.
