„A (…) sustainability-rating should give the highest ranking to those companies, which treat all commons (common goods) being used in their production equally to their own (private) assets.“
Prof. Dr. Johannes Hoffmann,
Emeritus Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, Initiator and Author of the Frankfurt-Hohenheimer Leitfaden, Manual for ecological, social and cultural rating of companies and financial assets.
„Sustainability in its true sense means that the regulatory policies have to exclude any externalisation of cost for the use of commons (common goods).“

What is a responsibly acting Investor?
Responsible Investors reflect on the ethical dimension of their investment decisions.
In doing so they evaluate the full consequences and motives of their actions in a way that prioritizes ethical criteria against financial interest.
They consider moral standards and their impact in asset allocation.
They are conscious on how their actions impact all parties involved.
They share responsibility for all – not only the economic – consequences of their actions.
