Only 39% invest sustainably globally1— largely because investors just aren’t clear about what it is, and how it can make a difference. Here, we break it down for you with what you need to know about sustainable investing to get started and make a difference.
What is sustainable investing?
It’s a way to invest for the returns you expect while staying true to your values. That’s whether you care about a cause, driving social change, or how a company or country conducts itself.
3 ways your portfolio can make a difference:
Exclude companies and industries that don’t reflect your values from your portfolio.
Integrate environmental, social and corporate governance factors into your portfolio to improve your returns and reduce your risk.
Invest with the intention to generate measurable environmental and social impact, alongside a financial return.
