In its February-March issue, Plenty magazine honored Domini Social Investments as one of 20 companies that are “pushing the eco envelope and changing the world.”
“Whether it’s because of their reach, their potential, their influence, or the sheer genius of their innovations, we predict that each one will have a hand in changing the world in one way or another—sooner rather than later,” the magazine said in introducing its inaugural “Plenty 20” listing.
“At Domini,” the article noted, “analysts don’t just look at the financial performance of the companies they invest in, they take social and environmental factors into account as well. Armed with $1.8 billion in assets, Domini has filed more than 140 shareholder resolutions with more than 60 corporations, actively engaging high-level management on issues ranging from product safety and sweatshop labor to climate change. The company has talked to Coca-Cola about human rights; coached the computer giant Dell on energy conservation; and convinced J.P. Morgan Chase, a $1.1 trillion bank, to adopt a comprehensive environmental policy.”
Launched in 2004, Plenty is a magazine “dedicated to exploring and giving voice to the green revolution that will define the 21st Century.” It claims a paid circulation of more than 100,000 through subscriptions and newsstand sales.
Domini often works with non-governmental organizations and other concerned investors in its corporate campaigns. The dialogues at Coca-Cola and J.P. Morgan Chase noted above are led by Christian Brothers Investment Services. Domini has played an active role in both dialogues.
