Use your money for good – options for ethical investing

The Highgate Society must stress that neither it, nor its Sustainable Living group give any financial advice whatsover. The material and links given are a selection to enable people to investigate ethical investing further on their own responsibility.

A packed audience came along to the Highgate Society on Wednesday 21st March 2018 to find out about sustainable banking and ethical investing.

To see the slides from the leading sustainable bank, Triodos, from positive investing company Ethex and from Quentin Given, a local Friends of the Earth representative see Use Your Money for Good – Options for Ethical Investing.

This page also has useful information about ethical financial advisors, divestment of pension funds and much more.
