What is 'good' investing?
Essentially, it means investing with the objective of "doing good", whilst aiming for a financial return. There is a range of options available, covering different values.
- Ethical investing - excluding companies based on their involvement in, for instance, tobacco, gambling or those that pollute the environment.
- Sustainable & responsible investing (SRI) - primarily focuses on measuring a company’s approach to managing sustainability factors.
- Impact investing - investing in companies, organisations and funds with the intention of those companies generating positive social and environmental impacts, through their products / services or business strategies, alongside seeking financial returns.
What does ‘Clean Slate Green Slate’ mean to us?
Our theme for 2020 is ‘Clean Slate Green Slate’. This means that we are looking at how we can build back better as a society for a green and fair recovery. The 'Clean Slate' focuses on how we treat our employees in a world dealing with a pandemic, and the ‘Green Slate’ focuses on what we are doing to help tackle climate change.
