What are climate friendly funds?

Our Stocks and Shares ISA and Lifetime ISA both come with the option to invest your money in a climate-friendly fund.

Our Global Equity Fund prioritises investing in companies that are working towards making money in a climate-friendly way, for example by moving away from fossil fuel use and towards more sustainable energy options. They also have less involvement in damaging activities, such as fracking or building weapons.

We review over 1,600 companies, comparing them against others in their sector and selecting those taking steps towards lowering their carbon footprint. This effectively excludes companies that are less proactive in reducing their impact on the environment.

The more money that is invested in climate-friendly funds, the more companies sit up and listen. It’s becoming increasingly important for companies to attract investors who care about the environment.
