Church investors push for corporate change

Stone-bibleAn alliance of church investors has resolved to push for more ethical corporate practices, following a meeting in Paris organised by the Church Investors Group (CIG) of Britain and Ireland.

One project is to end corporate complicity in human trafficking. CIG will lobby UK-listed hotel groups in a campaign that ties in with the 2012 Olympics in London.

Richard Nunn, chair of CIG, said: “It is important we use our voice as investors to hold companies to high ethical standards.”
