A responsible and ethical approach to form your investment portfolio.
ESG (Environmental Social Governance) investments assume
a responsible and ethical approach to the company's
investment portfolio forming.
It means checking the company for compliance with environmental, social, and management principles. After analyzing the company's activities, private investors or investment funds decide to refuse or agree to invest in the business. The company risks being left without investment funds if its approach to business does not match the moral principles of ESG funds. For instance, the use of child labor, large emissions, or harm to the consumer's physical and mental health during manufacturing will guarantee the exclusion of the organization from the ESG portfolio.
For example, if you try to reduce the use of plastic in your daily routine and are worried about climate change, you can invest in companies with environmental initiatives.
Try to imitate the investment funds' activity: choose the companies that comply with your values from a list of blue chips (the most liquid securities). In this way, you gain the opportunity to make money without compromising on your principles.
