Ethical Performance
inside intelligence for responsible business



September 2003

The Church of England significantly increased its engagement activity with companies in the last financial year. Acting through its Socially Responsible Investment Unit, run by CCLA Investment Management, the Church engaged 117 times on issues ranging from corporate governance to stem cell research. Face-to-face meetings with companies took place on 28 occasions, according to its annual socially responsible investment report. CCLA, which manages £5billion ($8bn) of church and charity money, said the ethical investment practices of the Church were becoming relatively more reliant on engagement, but negative screening remained important.
