Sustainable investing

Make a difference with your investment decisions

Sustainable investing allows you to invest in companies that have a positive impact on the world. You can select investments based on your values in a way it can help you achieve your financial goals.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)

ESG is a recognised way of measuring the sustainability of companies from not just one ethical perspective, but 3 – environmental, social and governance. As well as calculating the level of sustainability today, ESG scoring can also help work out how big a part environmental, social and governance principles will play in a company’s long-term performance.

Following this strategy helps build a better world, reduces damage to the environment and society, and creates wonderful opportunities.

What is sustainable investing?

Sustainable investing helps you to invest in companies that prioritise ethical and environmentally-friendly practices to make the world a better place.

From human rights and animal welfare to tackling climate change and closing the gender pay gap, making investments based on your values does not need to be a roadblock when it comes to achieving your long-term financial goals.

Why sustainable investing matters

Benefits to society

By investing in ethical companies, you can use your money to help nations, businesses and societies to grow, innovate and develop. You're not just investing in your own future - you're also contributing to positive change and progress around the world. 

Benefits to society

When you invest, it feels good to know exactly where your money is going. When you choose sustainable investing, you know that more of your money is being directed to companies that focus on making a positive difference. 

Also, with governments and corporations increasingly prioritising sustainable business models, the companies that are ahead of the curve on this are often those with the best potential for growth.
