I am interested in the global take-up of both ethical and sustainable investment (the two are quite different here in the UK), and interested in the areas that impact on investment decisions.
Of particular interest to me is the 'floating commitment' of many UK citizens to sustainability. Having had a quick look through some of the information on Change2, it appears that this floating interest may not be confined to the UK. By 'floating', I mean the overall interest in investing to make a change, but the parallel concern of ‘how does it perform’. Yes it is sensible to invest in a prudent way, but over here there are far too many people that refuse to invest in a sustainable way “just in case it may not do as well”, whilst at the same time trumpeting their commitment to sustainability. My view – you can’t have it both ways. ON is either ‘interested’ in sustainability, or one is ‘committed’ to sustainability. The former allows one to make all sorts of excuses, and the latter involves changing one’s lifestyle.
