Green and ethical investments look at the wider impact of investing on society and the environment when seeking financial returns. They take into account social or environmental considerations in addition to financial criteria.
You may sometimes hear the terms ‘responsible investment’ or ‘socially responsible investment’ used in place of ‘green and ethical’, but they essentially mean the same thing.
Just as you can now choose from a range of green or ethically produced goods in your local supermarket, you can also choose financial products that have positive benefits for the environment and society.
Green and ethical investments are a powerful tool that allows you to have a positive impact on the world around you. Green and ethical investments may promote greater corporate responsibility, invest in solutions to 21st-century problems, or contribute to cleaner, greener profits.
