Socially Responsible Investing aims for a financial return for the investor while improving social and environmental good. In order to assist investors with their investment decisions, some stock markets in South America – specifically those of Brazil, Mexico, Chile, and Argentina – have created local sustainability indexes. Unlike their counterparts in developed economies, these indexes provide free information on a firm’s CSR and the possibility for public scrutiny. This Latin American experience provides a model for Sustainability indexes in other emerging economies throughout the world.
