About Sustainable and Responsible Investing (SRI)
Sustainable and responsible investing (SRI) is grounded in the belief that companies that are both financially sound, and committed to corporate responsibility, offer desirable investment opportunities. The DC College Savings Plan is the only 529 plan in the country to offer a full range of sustainable and responsible investments. The investment choices available in the DC College Savings Plan are provided by Calvert, a leader in SRI for more than two decades.
Calvert offers one of the largest families of sustainable and responsible mutual funds in the United States. This means we incorporate not only fundamental financial analysis, but also evaluate potential investments for positive corporate practices, before we invest. At present, Calvert evaluates corporate integrity in seven broad areas: governance and ethics, workplace, environment, product safety and impact, international operations and human rights, indigenous peoples’ rights, and community relations.
