Introduction

Responsible investing has suddenly become front of mind with many leading financial institutions, and how the investment community can contribute to tackling climate change has become a very real question.

But there is much confusion among advisers, and investors at large over what exactly constitutes responsible investing. For some, a fossil fuel company transitioning to renewable energy is a step in the right direction, while for others this amounts to greenwashing.

And there is the perennial question of performance - do sustainable stocks perform better, the same or worse than traditional stocks?

All these questions will be looked at in this guide, which is worth an indicative 60 minutes' CPD.
