The Church of England’s Ethical Investment Advisory Group (“EIAG”) today published a report advising investors with Christian values how to approach investing in big technology companies. The Church’s National Investing Bodies (NIBs), which received the advice, have published a new policy in line with this guidance.
The report recommends technology companies make public commitments including:
- a commitment to verifiable transparency
- a commitment to promote human-centred design
- a commitment to enable the flourishing of children and other vulnerable groups
- a commitment to foster a tech eco-system that serves the common good.
