At Rainbow Solutions we believe the best long-term investments are in companies that combine strong financial performance with a solid commitment to creating products and services that are safe for the consumer, the environment, their employees, and their local communities. We can assist you in screening your investments according to your specific social justice and environmental concerns.
There is a growing awareness that companies that do not follow socially and environmentally responsible practices tend to have greater liabilities and charges against earnings due to regulatory pressures, fines, lawsuits, strikes, and boycotts.
