Who We Are

OUR HISTORY

The Socially Responsible Investment Coalition (SRIC) began as a dream of Sr. Francis Lorene Lange CDP in 1974. She believed that a Coalition for Responsible Investment (CRI) could be started in this region. Sr. Francis Lorene worked with Fr. Mike Crosby OFM Cap to found a Texas group to work with Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR). The seed was planted but did not sprout until 1982.

Texas CRI was founded in 1982 with the following members: Congregation of Divine Providence; Missionary Catechists of Divine Providence; School Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word—San Antonio; Oblates of Mary Immaculate; Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus; Benedictine Sisters—Boerne; Society of St Teresa of Jesus; Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Work—Houston Spiritans.

Since that time, SRIC has grown to 20 organizational members and a number of individual members and participated in numerous efforts to bring about responsible corporate behavior through the power of shareholder resolutions as well as corporate dialogues.

SRIC has been a member of Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR) since 1982. ICCR is a coalition of faith and values-driven organizations who view the management of their investments as a powerful catalyst for social change. Founded in 1972, its membership comprises nearly 300 organizations including faith-based institutions, socially responsible asset management companies, unions, pension funds and colleges and universities that collectively represent over $200 billion in invested capital. SRIC participates in ICCR dialogues. The participation and leadership of other ICCR members in corporate dialogues is instrumental to SRIC’s shareholder advocacy.
