What is sustainable investing?


Sustainable investing is all about investing in companies which are helping to address the World’s biggest challenges, finding new ways to do things and building a better future for everyone.

This may include ethical investments, where typically socially adverse businesses like alcohol production, tobacco and weapons are excluded, ESG investing, where Environmental, Social and Governance factors are combined with more traditional investment research, or Impact Investing, where the aim is to achieve specific positive social outcomes.

The brief film below, created by Aberdeen Standard Life, explains how impact investing can help improve our futures whilst providing the potential for long term returns.
