£12.2bn invested through pensions in green and ethical funds – Employee Benefits

The milestone was announced at the start of National Ethical Investment Week and Ecology said it was further evidence of the strength of the sustainable investment sector.”
Health warning: the wages of sin are expensive – Financial Times
“This is National Ethical Investment Week in the UK. Cynics might suggest that it makes a welcome change from 51 weeks of unethical investing. But it does help to shine a light on a discipline that is now established in the investment landscape, and fast changing”.
The green light for ethical investment, but where to start? – Daily Express
“Ethical and green encompasses a range of possibilities from investing in companies that proactively promote social good, such as human rights or community help, to those that generate clean energy from solar or wind, take care of the environment, combat waste and pollution or deal with the impact of climate change. Equally it can mean rejecting certain sectors, for example tobacco or armaments”.
Ethical investing: The principles or profits trade-off – City AM
“We are now mid-way through this year’s National Ethical Investment Week – designed to inform the public that they have sustainable and ethical options in their financial decisions. In recent years, low opportunity cost – driven by low interest rates and the struggle to get capital growth on savings – has led some investors to consider these options, especially those previously of the view that ethical investing involved a principles versus profit trade-off”.
National Ethical Investment Week 2013 runs from October 13-19. Join the debate on Twitter using the hashtag #moneydoinggood.
