Abstract: Socially responsible investments include environmental, social or ethical considerations in the set of criteria underlying investment decisions. The public at large is showing an increasing propensity to take them into account when deciding how to invest. This is why the assessment processes of corporate social performance must be formalised according to transparent procedures defining the underlying criteria as objectively as possible. All players in these processes are interested in their correct working. In this paper we analyse the role of ethical advisors, specialised entities or individuals who are expected to define measurement parameters to evaluate social responsible behaviours.
