The Calvert Social Index consists of about 480 of the largest companies considered to be the most socially and ethically responsible. The selection criteria consist of such issues as environment, weapons production, human rights, and fair labor practices. There are 2 funds which track this index: Calvert Social Index Fund (CSXAX) and Vanguard Calvert Social Index Fund (VCSIX).

The largest socially responsible index fund is the Domini Social Equity Fund index fund with over 500 million dollars under its management. You might also consider The Citizens 300 Fund.
