What is ethical investing?
Ten years ago, climate change wasn’t on most people’s radar. Sure, we’d heard the term and started to question what it was all about, but very quickly it’s become the most important issue facing the world today.
Now climate change and its effects on our future is at the front of our consciousness through ongoing activism, politics and increasingly the decisions businesses make.
It’s also provided the catalyst for an approach towards environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing, also known as socially responsible investing, ethical investing, green investing, and impact investing, all with the same goal: creating positive change by thoughtfully and intentionally investing your money.
While the notion of ethical investing has been around since biblical times, it wasn’t until 2006 when the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI) was released that it gained institutional support.

Some of the most significant changes to superannuation in decades passed through Parliament on Thursday afternoon, aimed at ensuring those of us who don’t pay much attention aren’t penalised for it.
And they will force funds to own up to their members when they underperform, and potentially cop some harsh punishments too.
The changes are not everything the government wanted them to be — it had to remove a bunch of controversial measures to secure enough support to get the bill through.
