Amy Domini Named "Responsibility Pioneer" by Time Magazine
Amy Domini, founder and CEO of Domini Social Investments, has been honored by Time magazine as one of 25 "Responsibility Pioneers" who are changing the world. The list accompanied the magazine's special section on community service, "The Responsibility Revolution," in the September 21 issue.
"Amy Domini started shaking up Wall Street in 1984 with a book she co-wrote, Ethical Investing," wrote Time’s Jeremy Caplan.
"Since then, she has used various means — from working with executives to forcing reforms via shareholder resolutions — to help companies grow a conscience. And she has proved that principles pay.... Her investing ethos is simple: 'The future of the planet is as important as an earnings report.'"
Amy Domini has been honored previously by Time magazine. In 2005, she was named by the magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. In 2008, Directorship magazine included Amy Domini in its Directorship 100, a list of the most influential people on corporate governance and in the boardroom. She has received honorary doctorates from the Northeastern University College of Law and Yale University's Berkeley Divinity School.
