Why we're going green with investments

And how that affects you

 

We’d have to be living in a cave not to notice the talk about the environment or climate change. 2021’s UN climate change conference (COP26) in Glasgow brought together countries to take action to reduce global warming, in accordance with the Paris Agreement. Making changes to the way we live has become a necessity, not a choice.

That’s why so many people are already taking steps to live better. Recycling; driving electric cars; changing our eating habits; using public transport – these are all ways to help reduce our carbon footprint, cut landfill and help the world become a safer, healthier place for future generations.

 

But it’s not just down to individuals. Businesses and pension schemes also need to change their habits and invest in the future. Whether it’s by setting goals to become carbon neutral, or investing in companies and funds that help the planet and its people, every positive step is a step in the right direction.
