What's a Climate Change Fund ISA?

What's a Climate Change Fund ISA?

For those who want to invest their money, but want to ensure they align their ISA accounts with their personal convictions about the planet: fear not! You can still make good returns from your investments while ensuring your money isn't invested in funds with a negative impact on the planet.

Investing with an ISA is a smart way to make your money work.

You can invest up to £20,000 per tax year in a tax-free wrapper which will keep your returns safe from the tax man. It’s an effective and savvy way to gain returns.

With more and more people realising the importance of sustainability issues with the advent of climate change, the need has arisen for investors to have the option of choosing to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to their investments.

You want to save the trees - but you also want to save your money.

This is where a Climate Change Fund ISA can be very useful.

What's a Climate Change Fund ISA? 

A Climate Change Fund ISA does what it says on the tin - it's a fund ISA which will allow you to rest assured your money will either be invested in planet-friendly endeavors, and notably avoiding any funds which are considered to be harmful to the planet. 

Climate change investment ISAs will also invest in companies that are deemed to be socially responsible, in terms of environmental impact. Funds that are aligned this way will generally invest in companies that are meeting positive carbon and environment al criteria.

For example, they might avoid any funds which have investments in fossil fuels, and may look to invest in companies which have low carbon emissions. 

Some providers many give you 'sustainability analysis' with your account, so you'll have a breakdown provided of how your money is working on a global scale.

  • Aligning your investments to your climate change convictions
