The UK Social Investment Forum (UKSIF) in the United Kingdom
"The UK Social Investment Forum's primary purpose is to promote and encourage the development and positive impact of Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) throughout the UK.
The Forum was launched in 1991 to bring together different strands of SRI nationally and to act as a focus and voice for the industry.
Membership in the UK Social Investment Forum is open to members of the public, professional advisors and fund managers, individual and institutional investors, community organisations, and other bodies concerned with SRI.
Aims and Objectives
To inform, educate, and provide a forum for discussion and debate for our membership and the public at large about issues and developments in the SRI field.
- To promote the understanding of socially responsible investment and to encourage the development of appropriate SRI practices and vehicles, both in terms of Stock Exchange investment and within the wider Social Economy.
- To identify, encourage and help develop working models which demonstrate the effectiveness of SRI in protecting and preserving the environment, alleviating social hardship, and stimulating sustainable economic development.
- To support and encourage a greater sense of social accountability amongst investors both corporate and individual and by financial institutions.
- To encourage and expect high ethical standards of professional conduct from our members and the public at large, as stated in the Memorandum & Articles of Association.
- To initiate and publish research for required changes in legislation and company policies and practices in order to enable SRI to develop rapidly and effectively both in the UK and internationally.
- To promote co-operation with European and other international SRI organisations through the exchange of information and ideas."
