Traditional investing practices only focus on maximizing profits and ignore the fact that their money supports polluting oil companies, predatory tobacco producers, and fast-fashion that contaminates water supplies.
Until we stop funding these organizations, we will continue to see rising global temperatures, oceans crowded with plastic, and burning rainforests.
Instead, our investments support companies that protect their people, their customers, and the environment. We believe these values will ensure success in the years to come as consumers increase the demand for renewable energy, upcycled materials, ethical treatment of workers, and locally-sourced ingredients.
By investing with a purpose can all make a difference!
Every single one of our investment products is, at a minimum, ESG certified. In many cases, we place even stricter filters on emissions, contaminates, and human rights than this progressive industry-standard.
Per Vanguard: ESG investing is a growing category of investment choices that blend environmental, social, and governance factors into traditional investment evaluations. You may hear the term used interchangeably with “socially responsible investing (SRI)” and “sustainable investing.
Um…. agreed. The investing world should have adopted higher standards long ago.
At ThriveOak, environmentally-sustainable and ethical investment products are available with minimal fees …and we’re just getting started!
