07 May | Keeping it Green
I’ve got to admit it, I’m a bit of a closet greenie. I’ve never chained myself to a tree or put my ample girth between a whale and a Japanese “research” boat you must understand, but in the back of my mind there’s a part of me that thinks maybe I should. As I nudge the big 4-0, I know dreams of environmental heroism are probably a little beyond me now but it doesn’t mean I can’t look to do my bit in other, less life-threatening ways.
I’m not going to make any bold claims that our little portfolio at Investor Trader will never contain a single holding that hasn’t done a little enviro-damage in its day. If that were the case, the available stock pool would be pretty shallow. But we will endeavor to actively seek out ethical investments and – all things being equal – invest our money there.
We’ve started off strongly with ReneSola, Low Carbon Accelerator and Climate Exchange and to continue in that vain, I call on all you green investors to help me steer this ship in the ethical direction. I’d love your ideas on potential ethical investments on the LSX and in the coming days will be adding a feature to Investor Trader where you can offer your suggestions. In the meantime I’d love it if you could leave any ideas in the commets section below this post.
