38 days to Good Money Week 2015



With just over five weeks until Good Money Week 2015, Blue & Green is gearing up for its unrivaled coverage of the annual event. Good Money Week takes place this year from 18 to 24 October. The agenda of events is impressive this year and we look forward to reporting on them. Check out the one in the Magna Carta City of Lincoln.

Good Money Week is the leading campaign to raise awareness of sustainable, responsible and ethical finance to help people make good money choices. Good Money Week aims to ensure that everyone knows they have sustainable and ethical options when it comes to their financial decisions.  Sustainable and ethical investment and finance allows you to have a positive impact on the environment and society without sacrificing financial performance.

Good Money Week brings together individuals, financial advisers, charities, faith, community and student groups and financial institutions to raise awareness of the importance of sustainable and ethical investment and finance.

Good Money Week was previously known as National Ethical Investment Week (NEIW). In 2014, the campaign was rebranded as Good Money Week to make the campaign relevant and accessible to a much wider audience; a reflection of how sustainable investment and finance has evolved and grown since 2008.

Good Money Week is co-ordinated by UKSIF – the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association.
