Environmental harm is commonly associated with companies that extract, consume, and pollute our shared natural resources. Rarely are the 'unseen polluters,' the financiers that sponsor and profit from eco-damaging corporations, placed at the forefront of the environmental debate.
By focusing on these unseen polluters, Benjamin Richardson provides a comprehensive examination of socially responsible investment (SRI), and offers a guide to possible reform. Richardson proposes that greater regulatory supervision of SRI will help ensure that the financial sector prioritizes ethically-based investments. In Socially Responsible Investment Law, he suggests that new governmental reforms should encourage companies to participate in socially responsible investments by providing a better mix of standards and incentives for SRI through measures that include redefining the fiduciary responsibilities of institutional investors to incorporate environmental concerns. By doing so, Richardson posits that corporate financiers, including banks, hedge funds, and pension plans, will become more accountable to the goals of ensuring sustainable development.

Professor Benjamin J. Richardson specializes in environmental and financial law at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto, Canada. His previous publications include Environmental Law for Sustainability (Hart Publishing, 2006) and Environmental Justice and Market Mechanisms (Kluwer, 1999). He is a member of the IUCN Environmental Law Commission and the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law.
"Building an economic system that is socially, economically and environmentally sustainable is the central ethical imperative of the 21st century. Benjamin Richardson argues that SRI has a central role to play in achieving that objective. This is a carefully reasoned and persuasive discussion that everyone concerned with the role of financial markets in encouraging sustainable development will want to read."

Socially Responsible Investment Law shows how to improve the environmental behavior of corporate financiers, such as banks, pension plans, and mutual funds. Normally, we associate environmental harm with the front-line companies that extract, consume, and pollute, but not the financiers that sponsor and profit from these activities. Corporate financiers are the economy s unseen polluters, and they should adopt policies and practices to avoid environmental harm that may result from their loans and capital financing investments. Benjamin Richardson proposes governance reforms to encourage Socially Responsible Investment. These include: redefining the fiduciary responsibilities of institutional investors to include the environment (specifically the precautionary principle); enhancing the strategic role of national pension funds in sustainable finance; building new forms of international cooperation for transnational financial markets; democratizing and strengthening local financing through credit unions; and, for all financiers, providing a better mix of economic incentives and informational resources for SRI.
