Banks and Pension funds only invest in ethical investments

Banks and Pension funds only invest in ethical investments

How does this impact on Community Wellbeing? People are not aware of the bad investment their money is being used for. Some activities are harmful to our communities, communities around the world and the planet itself. It needs to be easier to find out where our own money is being invested and we need to be able to influence this. Councils should play a role in ethical investments Why should the Committee focus on this as part of their future work? to invest wisely in our future, for our children/grandchildren. Banks & pension funds currently invest lots of the public’s money on unethical investments (firearms, oil companies, etc…) people do not know where their money is being invested and how it is contributing to harming the planet and other parts for the world. Banks and pension funds should be more transparent and up front about investments and be banned from investing in unethical activities or businesses who damage the environment.
