From Capitalism to Responsible Investment

We acknowledge the worth of putting surplus capital/resources to good use and sharing the rewards of enterprise between providers and users of capital.

However, capitalism has been uprooted from this relational context to focus increasingly on maximising short term financial profits for shareholders at the expense of other stakeholders.

Therefore, the value of relationships should be restored to the inner workings of capitalism. We must convince investors and companies that long-term growth, stability and stakeholder benefits depend on strong/healthy relationships. There should be “no reward without responsibility, no investment without involvement and no profit without participation”.
