Investors quintessentially expect to have the best possible returns from their investment and in order to do so are indulging themselves in the various kinds of investment markets that have come into being.
Ethical investing can be more precisely understood with words like responsible or socially responsible investing. It is also well known as green investing as it deals with investing in the society and environment with a considerable financial return. Investing ethically produces both returns and contributes to the planet.
Risks are the indispensible part of investing and it is no different for ethical investing as the company’s activities are more mainstream so before embarking into any kind of investments strict guidelines must be followed.
Investing in commodities such as timber, forestry and farming to alternative energy sources and eco-housing are some types of ethical investing.
Companies by choosing to invest ethically become more responsible corporate citizens and more profitable, not less.
