We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly
– Rev Martin Luther King, Jr
The Zug Guidelines to Faith-consistent Investing, published in October 2017, outline for the first time the investment priorities for dozens of traditions from eight of the world's major faiths – Buddhism, Christianity, Daoism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism and Shintoism – and the ethical rationale that lies behind them.
THE ZUG GUIDELINES
The Zug Guidelines were published at the Faith in Finance meeting, organised by FaithInvest's parent organisation, the Alliance of Religions and Conservation and held in Zug, Switzerland in October 2017.
The Zug Guidelines focus on how faiths can use their investments to support environmental and sustainable development for a better world. They helped to fuel an unprecedented interest in faith-aligned investing. Now more than 40 such guidelines exist.
