Build Back Better
At The Path, environment and society form the fundamental ethical backbone to everything we do. In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, we strongly support Build Back Better, the urgent campaign for a post-crisis recovery plan that rebuilds a better system and society.
Build Back Better was launched at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in the UK on International Nurses Day, the 12 May 2020, as the magnitude of its devastating impact on the poorest communities and most vulnerable could already be seen. The crisis exposed inequalities entrenched in our society that have long existed and hitherto been ignored by the political system.
Build Back Better aims to put these long-existing injustices to the top of the political agenda for recovery with 5 demands:
- Provide for the basic needs of everyone in the UK, through Covid-19 and beyond.
- Essential public services must be protected and funded.
- A green new deal: helping people and the planet by creating protected, well paid jobs and decarbonising the economy.
- People over big corp: refocusing policy and investment away from the businesses contributing to inequality and climate change and revolutionising the public and private finance system to give power to the people, communities and sectors helping the world.
- Helping communities across borders: as countries face different degrees of impact of coronavirus, we must work to end global poverty, injustices, environmental degradation and human rights violations and provide financial help to those who need it most.
The Path advocates for a better world in line with Build Back Better’s wider objectives. We are committed to a green, equal society where food, housing, job security, healthcare, clean and affordable energy, green space and clean air are available to all.
We do this in a number of ways. The Path was created from scratch with ESG defining everything from our ethos to business practices. We invest solely in companies actively helping people and planet – Our investment approach model is the ESG gold standard, aligning with the UN’s 17 SDG goals. We work closely with the funds and businesses we invest in, monitoring policies and practices and always pushing for change.
We believe championing our sustainable message is essential for the wider reform that underpins our mission. Just as Build Back Better fights for deep systemic change, our vision is to revolutionise the entire investment landscape.
Build Back Better gives voice to the hardest hit communities by harnessing people power and connecting organisations to form the radical new platform necessary to demand life-changing and life-saving services that should be a right, not a choice.
At The Path we are passionate about implementing this same model for change, by bringing power to the consumer and by making a radical statement to the financial community. We seek to create a movement of likeminded investors, financial advisers and funds – people who deliberately choose to make their money matter and demand their savings are invested ethically; financial experts wanting to do good with their work; and businesses tackling the greatest environmental and social issues.
We believe it is only by raising our voice alongside organisations like Build Back Better that we can reverse the deep-rooted inequalities that destroy lives, weaken the economy and threaten the planet.
