Why invest ethically?
If you currently invest in a pension or an ISA there is a very strong chance that your money could be financing, among other things, weapons production, animal exploitation or environmental damage. If you care about the impact that your money may have on issues such as these then responsible investing is definitely something that you should consider.
It is now easier to match an investment to you own values.
Over recent years the amount of damage that can be caused by irresponsible company behaviour in such areas as the environment and communities has become more apparent. The exciting thing nowadays is that as an investor you have a choice and a very powerful way to have your say in these issues. By investing more ethically you are striking another blow against the companies that are acting irresponsibly and helping to take another step towards a positive change.
