Green & Ethical Investing
Stewart Investment Planning is a member of the Ethical Investment Association (EIA) & the Sustainable Investment and Finance Association (UKSIF). Although not exclusively, we are dedicated to the promotion of green, socially responsible and ethical investments and truly believe that you can "Profit with Principles".
We are also supporters of www.goodmoneyweek.com (formerly National Ethical Investment Week).
Buying a green and ethical investment is a very positive choice - your money not only works hard for you, but can also help society and the environment.
What does it mean?
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 criteria in addition to financial criteria.
You may sometimes hear the terms 'responsible' or 'socially responsible investing' used interchangeably with 'green' and 'ethical', but they usually mean the same thing.
The terms 'green' and 'ethical' can apply to many different types of financial products and investments. Options exist for investment funds, pension schemes, savings accounts, and even mortgages.
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.
