The growing demand for ethical pensions
An increasing number of us are changing our lifestyles, in growing concern about the climate emergency. Veganism, vegetarianism, switching to electric vehicles, reducing our plastic consumption and reducing our travel – there are a number of personal choices we as a nation are undertaking to reduce our environmental impact.
Given the rise of auto-enrolment, individuals are investing at a higher rate than ever before – some for the first time, without the knowledge that many investment funds are contributing to industry and sectors that have a negative impact, including fossil fuel investment, weaponry and armaments, the oil and gas industry, mining and companies with questionable human and workers’ rights issues.
Investment within green, ethical, socially responsible and ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) funds has been growing year on year – in fact, inflows into ethical and sustainable funds within the private sector reached 90% of all equity investment in June 2021 alone.
Within the private retail investment sphere, 41% of financial advisers are reporting that more of their clients than ever are requesting investments that take into account the impact that funds have on the planet and people.
But with a workplace pension, it’s not quite as simple.

As always with investments, your capital is at risk. The value of your investment can go down as well as up, and you may get back less than you invest. This information should not be regarded as financial advice.
