Chapter

Zusammenfassung

This chapter focuses on the historical development of the informational infrastructure which enabled the social responsibility of both companies and investors. The informational infrastructure had its point of origin in various and often individualized initiatives in the United States. Nowadays, like sustainable investing, informational infrastructure is considered mainstream in the conventional financial market. Even though those who made sustainable investments also suffered losses during the financial crisis, their type of investment can increase the growth in this investment segment; like the Vietnam War, consumer protection initiatives or the Anti-Apartheid Movement in the past century. They all played an important role in promoting sustainable investing.
