The Congregation of St. Joseph is dedicated to bringing about social change. We believe that the dignity of the individual is more important than the profit of the corporation, and we work to ensure that we use our resources for social good. This work leads us to believe that it is our responsibility to conduct business in a way that is socially conscious, sustainable and ethical, and to use our investments to make our voices heard and create change.
We incorporate multiple approaches in our socially responsible investment program to accomplish this goal of positive social change. These approaches include shareholder engagement, portfolio screening and community development investments. An SRI (Sustainable, Responsible, and Impact) Sub-Committee oversees these initiatives for the Congregation, with ongoing support from the Congregation’s Investment Committee. Both of these committees are guided by a commitment to the Congregation’s Generous Promises.
