Responsible investing

Social and environmental change is happening faster than ever. People are increasingly conscious of climate change, and are making positive changes, such as recycling and using environmentally-friendly products. But have you considered how your pension, ISA or GIA savings can make a positive contribution towards a more sustainable world? 

The following video is about Investing for a sustainable future and has a transcript (see below).

Responsible, sustainable, ethical or ESG (environmental, social and governance) investing all refer to the criteria that fund managers might look at when you invest in a ‘responsible’ fund. Some examples of these factors are:


Climate change policies​

Renewable energy​

Waste and pollution​

Energy efficiency​ 


Workplace safety​

Data protection and privacy​

Human rights​

Labour standards​


Board diversity​

Anti-corruption policies​

Corporate behaviour​

Shareholder rights​
