Biblically responsible investing with the Inspire Impact Score

The ­Inspire Impact Score is a faith-based ESG (environment, social, governance) security selection methodology that seeks to identify the most inspiring, biblically aligned companies in the world.

The Inspire Impact Score utilizes both positive inclusionary and negative exclusionary screens in the scoring process. The result is a rules-based system of finding companies which are operating as blessings to their customers, communities, workforce and the world, and excluding companies which are operating at odds with biblical values.

Inspire seeks out above average, “best in class” companies in the following areas:

Business Model

Business products, services and operations structured in a way to benefit rather than exploit customers.

Product Integrity and Innovation

Creates products and services which are helpful and create value rather than extract value or harm users.

Corporate Governance

Policies and behaviors regarding executive compensation, ethical dealings, board management, etc.

Human Capital

Policies and behaviors regarding equitable employee management.

Social Impact

Impact and influence on society and communities in which the company operates.

Supply Chain

Impact and influence on society and communities in which the company operates.

Environment

Measures company’s impact on the environment, including air, water and land.

Sustainable Energy Use and Production

Measures company’s use and production of sustainable energy.

Inspire ETFs carefully avoids companies with exposure to these contentious areas:

Pornography

Manufacture, sale or distribution of pornographic content.

Alcohol

Manufacture or sale of alcoholic beverages.

    Tobacco

    Manufacture or sale of tobacco products.

      Gambling

        Bio Ethics

        Involvement in the business or promotion of abortion, including abortifacient drugs, embryonic stem cell research, philanthropy, etc.

        Human Rights

        Known human rights violations such as employing children, slave labor, human trafficking, discrimination, etc.

        LGBT Activism

        Corporations using shareholder dollars to push a social agenda, alienating consumers and investors with alternative viewpoints

        Cannabis
