Screening is the filtering process used to either identify certain securities to exclude or to find those that should be included in investors' portfolios based on social and/or environmental criteria. Screening has evolved as a tool for investors to manage risk and engage with companies that fall short in areas such as strong employee relations, community involvement, excellent environmental policies and practices, and human rights. Positive and negative challenges come with screening.

  • Why was screening created?
  • What goes into screening tools?
