Website launched for National Ethical Investment Week

Written by:

A new website and set of support tools have been launched to help raise awareness for the UK’s first National Ethical Investment Week (NEIW).

NEIW, which will run from 18 to 24 May 2008, aims to give the financial services industry a chance to encourage consumers to consider green and ethical investments. The week is being supported by product providers including Henderson Global Investors, Norwich Union and Friends Provident.

Penny Shepherd, chief executive of UK Social Investment Forum, the ethical investment body who are leading the week, said: “Behaving in ways that can help benefit the environment or society is becoming increasingly mainstream. Choosing a green and ethical investment can be another way of acting responsibly but many people are still not aware of the wide range of green and ethical investment choices available today. We hope that independent financial advisers and other investment professionals will use NEIW to highlight how they can help.

James Dalby, fund development manager at Norwich Union said: “Anyone who recycles their waste will appreciate that collectively many small actions can make a big difference. The same applies to investing, as the pooling of investors’ money in ethical funds can help to shape the future approaches of corporate organisations.”
