Trying being vegan this January… have you thought about where you invest as well as what you eat?

Over 629,000 people signed up to non-profit organisation Veganuary’s 2022 campaign – which works to promote veganism in over 220 countries. But many vegans and vegetarians are unaware that moving their money can have an even bigger greener impact than their food choices.

Are you taking part in this year’s Veganuary? Have you thought about looking at your investments as well? Research from Make My Money Matter shows that the single biggest impact most people have on climate change is via their finances. The average UK pension has 21x more impact on an individual’s carbon footprint than other lifestyle or behavioural changes, such as reducing car journeys or even… going vegan.

Path is dedicated to impact investing, meaning we screen out any companies or funds that are harming our planet. With our dedicated Climate Solutions Portfolio, you can actively choose to invest in companies that are trying to solve the climate crisis, rather than the ones causing it.

Created specifically for customers looking to tackle the climate emergency with their pensions and investments, money invested in the Path Climate Solutions Portfolio is not just aligned with UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), it’s focused on tackling climate change – so you can be sure your money makes a difference.

By moving your money to us, we will make sure your investments, pensions, savings and other money are only put into activities which preserve the planet rather than pollute it.

Meat and dairy-free pension options with Path

The Veganuary campaign undoubtedly sheds light on the benefits of being vegan and encourages people to make the change and make better choices for our planet.

And, if you’re still looking to reduce your meat consumption for ethical reasons – at Path, we can help you towards a pension that is as close to vegan as possible by avoiding exposure to dairy and addressing any exposure to animal testing within the healthcare, life sciences and pharmaceutical industries.
