Over recent years there have been many events and milestones that have shone a light on unethical business controversies and on global sustainability initiatives. Society has, at the same time, been paying greater attention to these ethical and sustainable issues occurring across the face of the world as we know it today. This increased consciousness has led to a change in the investment environment too, with a greater range of investments with varying degrees of ethical consideration now broadly available.
These developments may have led you to consider the ethical practices of your current investments and the extent to which positive, sustainable change factors underpin particular holdings within your portfolio. You may have considered if you could distance yourself from businesses with certain exposures, or indeed favour having exposure to those which are enabling positive change towards a more sustainable future
