About Us

The Initiative for Responsible Investment at the Hauser Institute for Civil Society supports the social purpose of finance through research and multi-stakeholder dialogue, with the goal of catalyzing leadership and action that creates long-term, values-driven wealth.

The IRI serves as an applied research center to advance the field on fundamental issues and theories underlying the ability of financial markets to promote wealth creation across asset classes, while creating a stronger society and a healthier environment. The IRI accomplishes its mission by developing and presenting original research, providing a platform for dialogue, and taking practical action around issues of importance to the responsible investment community.
