Money

How you invest your money shapes the world

Apply your ethical beliefs to your investments even if it means smaller financial returns; social and environmental returns benefit the wider world

Divest from financial institutions which invest in fossil fuel extraction

Invest in banks, building societies, insurance companies, pension schemes, credit unions, and community projects which work for positive environmental and social change

Increase your impact by telling your old bank why you are moving your money
