How can we reinforce the impact of investment on sustainable development in the Mediterranean? ANIMA provides answers and courses of action by publishing a study on “Socially Responsible Investment: What Strategy for the Mediterranean?” as part of the Invest in Med project, supported by the European Commission.


Investment is up until now hardly sustainable in the Mediterranean and does not produce all the effects hoped for in economic terms (growth, productivity) but also for society (creation of jobs and skills) and environment (conservation of natural resources). The study provides an outlook of the impacts of investment for the three cornerstones of sustainable development and then presents the stakes, strategies and tools for the four main categories of stakeholders of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) in the Mediterranean: the public authorities, the business support organisations, companies and financial players.


The study also proposes three series of recommendations intended for public bodies. They are accompanied by courses of action which could be implemented by ANIMA, its institutional partners and the networks of intermediate operators who work together within the MedAlliance.
