While individuals differ in the personal and social criteria they feel are appropriate when choosing to invest, the following factors are some of the more common criteria for socially responsible investing in the U.S.: (1) invest in corporations that have positive records on the environment, employee and community relations, and the safety and usefulness of its products; and (2) avoid investing in corporations that do business in nations that commit major human rights violations; have significant sales of arms and military equipment; have significant involvement in nuclear power production; or are heavily involved in the tobacco, alcohol, or gambling industries.
