PHILADELPHIA, PA, August 28, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- In a new statement to the press, Avacade reviews the growing buzz for socially responsible investment. While socially responsible investment is not a brand new phenomenon, it is certainly one that has gained considerable traction in recent months. In fact, a recent report
from Yahoo! Finance provides some insights into what socially responsible investment is, and why it has grown so popular. Avacade reviews the article and its claims in its new statement to the press, also offering a few words of caution to socially responsible investors.
The Yahoo report begins by offering a basic definition. According to the article, socially responsible investing--which is often abbreviated as simply SRI--comes in two distinct forms. The first form of SRI involves the ownership of stocks that are deemed "green"--that is, stock from companies that pose no threat to the environment, or that make an effort to implement eco-friendly practices and products. Investors seek investment opportunities that allow them to promote earth-friendly practices but also investment opportunities that are financially advantageous.
The second form of socially responsible investment involves a more direct and proactive investment in local communities. As the article makes clear, these investments do not necessarily offer direct or immediate financial gains.
the next topic raised in the Yahoo report, which is where socially responsible investment opportunities can be found. The report says that there are many websites that claim to offer green investment opportunities. "It is important to really study these sites and ensure that they are offering legitimately green investments, which some of them are not" Avacade cautions.
Avacade also notes that green investment opportunities take many different forms. "Avacade reviews eco-friendly timber opportunities, in green economies from around the world," the company states. "Our investors have the opportunity to invest in these fine hard woods, and ultimately to harvest big profits over time, all while supporting environmentally ethical practices."
Yahoo notes some of the particular advantages of socially responsible investing--beyond the fact that it allows investors to make a positive impact in the world while also growing their portfolios. "Given that every investor has different objectives and needs... one big benefit of the new social investing world is that you can decide not only where, but how long, you want to lend out your money," the article states.
"For all of these benefits, there are also some cautions that we might offer," continues the statement from Avacade. "While our company provides some truly green investment methods, there are some companies out there that engage in 'greenwashing'--making their products or their processes out to be Earth-friendly when in reality they are not or when the scientific evidence is not yet in. Make sure full due diligence is completed before selecting a green investment company."
