ethical investments

ethical investments
Investments that are made in companies that make a positive contribution to the world and are kind to the environment. Most ethical investments are made through a managed investment fund such as a unit trust or pension fund, as it is difficult for an individual investor to judge whether a particular company is ethical or not.
