Calvert & CSR
Calvert has been a leader in the socially responsible investing field for more than two decades. At the heart of Calvert’s success is a clear and compelling investment philosophy that reflects our Double Diligence(tm) research process. Only when a company meets our rigorous standards for both financial and social performance do we invest.

Calvert has been a leader in promoting corporate responsibility for many years, through its investments, social screening and shareholder advocacy programs. Calvert’s Corporate Responsibility Matters campaign is a five-pillar initiative designed to help contribute to healthier companies, stronger markets, and better investments. Here are just a few ways in which a company’s attention to social concerns can have positive effects on its long-term prosperity: environmental efficiency and awareness, workforce diversity, product safety and quality, innovative personnel policies, positive corporate citizenship, and responsible corporate governance.
