5 good reasons to choose socially responsible investment
Responsible investors seek to invest in companies that have sustainable environmental, social, ethical and corporate governance practices. Socially responsible investing (SRI) is becoming increasingly popular as it allows investors to achieve financial returns while having a positive impact on society and the environment. It is an approach that aims to apply the concept of sustainable development to the field of financial investment.
Do you want to get started, but are not yet sure of the benefits? Discover 5 good reasons to choose socially responsible investment and contribute to the well-being of the environment and communities!
GIVE MEANING TO YOUR INVESTMENTS!
By choosing SRI, invest in harmony with your interests. Make your savings a real lever for change by encouraging companies with responsible practices, both for the planet and for society. You have the opportunity to act for a better world on your own scale and choose companies that are directly linked to your priorities and the issues you care about. Are you concerned about diversity, climate change or inclusion? Responsible investing is for you!
SUPPORT PROJECTS WITH HIGH ADDED VALUE!
Responsible investing stands out with a stock selection process that includes an evaluation of ESG criteria, in other words, the environmental, social and governance practices implemented by companies. Thus, you support companies acting in favor of sustainable development.
🤓 In this spirit of respect for the environment and communities, Birdee excludes certain sectors from its stock portfolios, such as companies active in the coal, tobacco or arms industries.
BE PART OF THE WORLD'S MOVEMENT!
In today's society, preserving the planet and communities is critical to ensuring a better world. Responsible investing is a global movement that has a powerful impact on business. Companies are more encouraged to adopt sustainable environmental, social and corporate governance practices. The more investors save their assets in responsible investment solutions, the more companies aim to implement responsible practices. In addition, companies are better equipped to deal with change and become more resilient and flexible to the modern economy.
While some may think that the return on responsible investments is less than that of traditional investments, it is equivalent, if not greater, over the long term. This is because companies with sustainable practices tend to be better managed and take environmental, social and governance risks into account in their operations.
With good practices, investors who choose responsible companies can therefore benefit from higher financial returns over the long term. Better equipped and more resilient, committed, sustainability-minded companies should be better able to weather financial and economic crises and various social risks.
CONTRIBUTE TO A BETTER FUTURE FOR ALL!
Among responsible investment, shareholder engagement is a real lever for change. Shareholder engagement has a positive impact on current and future generations. Investing responsibly with companies committed to sustainable development allows you to make a significant gesture for the health of the country, the planet, society, but also your family! Responsible investment means contributing to making the world a better place today and tomorrow by including :
- the fight against climate change,
- the reduction of social inequalities,
- promoting a more sustainable and equitable economy.
