It is possible to be both profitable and socially responsible if one chooses companies that (1) have good earnings and growth potential, low debt, new product lines, and solid financials; and (2) which do not have class action lawsuits or regulatory reprimands dragging on their bottom line; and (3) which make a sincere effort to be both socially and environmentally responsible. Such companies tend to have good management, market foresight, and a high degree of efficiency. After all, what is social and environmental irresponsibility but a glaring "red flag" that a company's management is insensitive to the world around it, too narrowly focused on the short-term, and unconcerned about its wasteful use of interior and exterior resources.
