Join Investors and Companies to Protect the Freedom to Invest Responsibly

In a new statement from Ceres, Investors and Businesses Call on Policymakers to Protect the Freedom to Invest Responsibly, signatories, including Church Investment Group, reminded policymakers that they must be free to consider all material financial risks and opportunities to plan for the long-term and build a stronger, more resilient economy. Building profitable businesses and portfolios demands an analysis of all major financial risks—from inflation to climate change—and policies to limit that simply defy responsible investing and business practices.

In recent months, we’ve seen positive momentum build as more investors and companies have signed on to the statement and more legislation to restrict investment options have failed or stalled in key states over increasing concerns about the millions of dollars in additional taxpayer costs these policies would result in, as well as growing wariness over interfering with investor freedom to invest responsibly and protect the long-term value of their investments.
