Types of Ethical Investments
Ethical Investments and Green Investments come in all shapes and sizes and many have very different investment objectives. For example, one fund may invest in ethically-sound corporate bonds issued by UK Companies whilst another may invest in International Equities issued by green companies in foreign markets.
As a result, the performance and risk of these funds will vary, just as they would with other investments.
Ethical investment funds screen the companies that they choose to invest in. This screening can be ‘positive screening’ or ‘negative screening’.
Positive Screening will result in the support and encouragement of companies that are involved with services such as:
- Green Energy
- Sustainable Living
- Social Responsibility
- Environmental Services
Negative Screening will result in the avoidance of companies dealing with, or linked in anyway with:
- Weapons and Armaments
- Energy companies with unsatisfactory environmental track records
