It’s a sign of the shifting energy landscape as incumbents in the auto and electricity industry try to maintain the status quo, tech companies like Google are planning to generate 1 gigawatt of renewable energy and electric cars… (not forgetting, of course, the ex-tech-startup led Tesla Motors)
Choice magazine has a great review of ethical investment (also known as socially responsible investment) funds in Australia.
My long-time fave, Australian Ethical is the only one that has stayed out of all of the so-called “sin stocks” of alcohol, tobacco, weapons (euphemistically labeled “defence” in Choice’s comparison) and uranium.
If you’re considering ethical investment as an option, perhaps for your superannuation, the review is well worth a look.
On a related note, Choice recently announced their sustainability policy. Hits a lot of the right notes…
