Many of the world’s larger governments and larger financial institutions are moving towards a cleaner, greener world. The private sector are often the best leaders of change, so many of the world’s leading companies are going clean green too.
Companies leading change are benefiting from more financial investment than ever before and with governmental and financial institutional backing, it’s hard to see that it won’t continue for years to come.
Investing in Clean Green Super
So, is it worth it? Like any investment, it depends what you want to get out of it. Many ‘clean green’ companies have similar performance returns to their ‘non-green’ competitors. Ultimately, there are options worthy of consideration, so we’re only too happy to help you through the process.
You can invest because of your conscience or just because you think it makes sense but in the end, clean green super is here to stay.
Questions to ask yourself
1. Do you know what Sustainable or ESG means?
Sustainable investing, ESG in “financial advice speak”, means Environmental, Social and Governance. These three factors refer to the process a company takes in managing their business. By investing for you, we can consider how a company manages issues around climate change, how one manages their business socially and do they have fair governance practices.
2. How many of the ESG factors do you want to consider?
Do you want us to concentrate on one, two or all three of these factors? Some may be more important to you than others or you may want all of them to be considered.
3. Are there any industries you want to avoid?
Being able to reduce exposure to some areas are important to some investors. For some, it’s just a matter of wanting to invest for ‘good returns’ but also do good for the world too, so a more rounded portfolio matters.
Common areas our clients want to avoid are:
- Fossil Fuel Powered Companies
- Uranium / Nuclear
- Coal Mining
- Gold Mining
- Adult Entertainment
