You can do good while seeking returns

It’s a myth that you will give up performance when you invest sustainably. Returns can be comparable to conventional investments.2 And with companies and funds beginning to report on their social and environmental contribution, it’s getting easier to see how you’re making a difference. What do you know about sustainable investing?

What is “sustainable investing”?

If you aren’t sure, you’re not alone. 72% of investors say they don’t understand sustainable investing terms.1 We’ll break it down for you.

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.3 Those who already invest according to their values dedicate nearly 36% of their portfolio to sustainable investments.1
