MetadataShow full item record
Current development of corporate social responsibility concept and practice caused that investors pay more and more attention to social and environmental aspects while building their investment portfolio. This triggered a growth of socially responsible investment market and socially responsible stock indexes where companies that meet certain criteria related to CSR are listed. The Respect Index is the example of such indexes from Poland. The main goal of the presented paper is to check how the market reacts on an announcement about an inclusion of a company to the Respect Index. The Respect Index and the relatively young socially responsible investment market in Poland delivers a unique chance to explore described processes in a country with economy just two decades after the transition. We can observe whether few years only since the launch of the responsible index on Warsaw Stock Exchange have allowed Polish investors to learn this new market and react on new opportunities it creates.
