CRI Issue Reports

Impact and Justice Reports

CRI Progress Reports

For each of the Impact & Justice engagements, the team establishes short- and long-term goals in order to measure and evaluate progress. Goals are dependent on how far along a company is towards identifying and addressing an issue.

The Catholic Responsible Investing approach centers on three key principles: Economic Justice, Care for Creation, and Human Dignity.

A fundamental concern for corporate executives must be the impact of their company’s actions on the well-being of people, particularly the poor and vulnerable.
