Ethical Investment Advisory Group
The Ethical Investment Advisory Group (EIAG) supports the Church
of England's National Investing Bodies (NIBs) on ethical investment
- the Church Commissioners,
the Church of England Pensions
Board and the CBF Church
of England funds managed by CCLA.
The role of the EIAG and its
Secretariat is to provide timely and
practical Advice, to support the NIBs to invest ethically in a way
which is distinctly Christian and Anglican. In particular, such
Advice may relate to:
- assets, sectors or markets in which it would not be appropriate
for the NIBs to invest (including screening),
- stewardship by the NIBs of their investments (including voting
- relationships with managers and other investors, and
- policy issues.
The EIAG's members include
representatives of General Synod, the Archbishops' Council, the
Council for Mission and Public Affairs, the investing bodies and
co-opted members. There is a rich mix of theological, Church,
investment and business experience.
