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.

Also, listen in to Part 2 on Thursday 29 October to learn about our green agenda heat map which highlights countries well positioned to advance climate policy even in the midst of the on going global pandemic, how investing with an impact can make a difference on the environment and society and listen to our panel as they discuss the roles that research and engagement can play in making investors agents for change.
