Sustainable saving and investing

You can make a difference by investing in socially and environmentally responsible companies. This gives them additional funding and puts pressure on other companies to change their ways. But does that mean you also have to rethink your return expectations?

What is sustainable investing?

The way you save and invest can have an impact on more than your own economy. When you find issues like healthy environment, human rights or better working conditions important, you can consider these values in your savings and investments as well.

Make a difference with your decisions

By choosing sustainable investment products, you support companies that operate in a sustainable way or develop such solutions. 

When making investment decisions you can look at the following factors in addition to the financial numbers:

  • Does the company act in an environmentally friendly way?
  • Do they look after their employees' health and security?
  • Do they comply to international agreements?

Sustainabile investing is also profitable

Taking environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria into consideration in investment processes is not only beneficial from a sustainability perspective, but also from a financial perspective.
