The Co-operative Financial Services and Ecclesiastical Investment Management are today named as sponsors of the third National Ethical Investment Week (NEIW). Organised by UKSIF, the sustainable investment and finance association, NEIW 2010 will be held 7-13 November. NEIW will feature a series of events and other activities across the country to raise awareness of green and ethical investing.
Penny Shepherd MBE, UKSIF Chief Executive, said:
“After the success of last year we expect NEIW 2010 to be even bigger. The current problems faced by BP have pushed the environment and the need for sustainable development to the top of the investment agenda. Consumers are increasingly aware of the impact of their investments and the opportunity for their finance and investment decisions to have a positive long term impact. Modern green and ethical investment is now an attractive choice for mainstream investors.
Increasing numbers of investors want some exposure to green and ethical investments as part of a mixed portfolio. And they want an improved focus on risks to their investments, including social and environmental risks.”
