How do I get started?

Check your portfolio

How sustainable is your portfolio?

Many investors don't even realise they have sustainable investments. Ask your UBS Advisor if you do, and how you can do more.

Choose your values

What do you care about?

You can choose more than one way to make a difference. Do you want to wipe out pollution? Combat climate change? Help educate children? We can help you get started.

Invest for good

Put your values in action

Decide if you want to:

  • Exclude companies with different values than yours
  • Integrate companies who reflect your values
  • Select investments that make an impact you can see

You don't have to choose just one way to invest sustainably. In fact, you can make your portfolio 100% sustainable. Those who already invest according to their values dedicate over a third of their portfolio to sustainable investments.1
