Daoism does not measure prosperity in terms of personal wealth or material abundance, but rather in the well-being of the planet and the number of species that co-exist with us harmoniously.

FCI GUIDELINES

Developing faith-consistent investment guidelines is an important step for faith groups seeking to align their investments with their values and are a requirement for membership of FaithInvest.  

Many faith groups have officially approved statements or position papers on environment, social justice and negative investment screening policies, based on their religious beliefs and priorities. The FCI Guidelines are a distillation of the key points in these existing documents with an additional drawing out of positive investment criteria and suggestions, together with examples of good practice.
