Investors still failing to consider ethics, report shows
The report showed that:
- Only 1 in 10 investors and savers (9%) think ethically when they invest their money
- Over half (57%) seek to purchase goods that are fair trade, sustainable, ethical or not harmful to the environment
- More women seek to purchase ethically sourced products, compared with men
A new survey has revealed that only 5% of people think about making a positive impact on society when making an investment. Nearly three in five investors and savers (58%) say that the level of financial return is what they care about when considering where to put their money.
