The aim of ‘Good Money Week 2022’ is to help the public make better choices with their pensions, savings and investments that align with their values, and better understand the positive impact they can have on the environment and society.
As a Certified B Corp, verified to meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability we feel it’s extremely important to spread the word on making a positive impact with your finances.
Many people are now making cleaner, greener choices with their money when it comes to household products, reducing meat and plastic and choosing renewable energy but your bank, pension, savings and investments could have an even bigger positive impact on the planet.
The demand for investments that do not add to the climate crisis and other environmental, social and company governance (ESG) issues such as poverty, education, gender equality, responsible consumption etc. is growing rapidly and people want informed advice on ensuring their money doesn’t make things worse. Of course it’s important to seek a financial return but if the investment can consider the environment and society as well, then for many that is a win win situation
Our wealth management team, Robson Laidler Wealth, felt a responsibility to our clients to offer well researched responsible, ethical, sustainable and impact investment options so launched a range of sustainable investment (ESG) portfolios in 2020, looking at fund managers who invest in companies who hold the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SGC) at the core of their strategy and those who are striving to play key roles in developing solutions to combat the issues we face globally.
Investing enables us to pool our money and invest in assets which would be difficult to invest in on our own and together we have a voice, a unique opportunity to drive positive change.
