Abstract

This paper presents the Multi Criteria Decision Making Analysis (MCDA) technique as a potential tool for the sustainable investment sector. MCDA is a tool that can be used to facilitate the incorporation of the sustainability performance indicators reported by companies adhering to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Guidelines into a sustainable investment decision making framework. The application of this tool to the sustainable investment setting is demonstrated using an illustrative example.
