The discipline, initially known as socially responsible investing, initially focused on excluding companies that operated in South Africa or participated in sectors such as tobacco, alcohol and fire arms.

Now, instead of simply identifying sectors to avoid, the discipline promotes “sustainable” business practices across sectors that can have an “impact” on global issues such as climate, hunger, poverty, disease, housing and workers’ rights.
