Sustainable investment solutions
Invest with a clear conscience
Fairtrade, environmental protection, social responsibility: as consumers, more and more people are prioritizing these criteria and wanting to invest their money in sustainable options. There are two ways to do this: you can either buy shares in companies that are committed to sustainability, or you can invest in funds that hold the securities of such companies in their portfolio. Companies’ sustainability credentials are usually evaluated based on ESG (environmental, social and governance) criteria. Specifically, they are used to examine whether companies invest in renewable energy, use energy and raw materials efficiently and are environmentally sound in their production. The social aspects focus on topics including fair working conditions and workers’ rights, such as the ban on child and forced labour. In terms of corporate governance, key criteria are the prevention of corruption and bribery and the approach to whistle-blowing. PostFinance offers a range of funds classified as sustainable funds.
