European countries as well as in the United States. The socially responsible assets as well as the number of mutual socially responsible funds in the world are increasing (see: Eurosif 2010, Vigeo 2011, Report on Socially Responsible Investing in the United States 2010). However the idea of SRI in such countries as Poland is still quite new and the market itself has little to offer in the field of socially responsible investment. The main intention of this research was to explore the possibilities to develop the idea of SRI in business practice in Poland. Poland is assumed to be a religious country with a high percentage of baptised citizens. Therefore the second goal of the research was to investigate if there is a potential for SRI development in Poland due to its religiosity. With a sample of 361 individual investors this study measures the impact of faith on one's willingness towards SRI. The results show that a practicing believer (so called "church goer") is more prone to invest in SRI funds. (abstrakt oryginalny)
