Ethical Investing: Introduction

By Amy Fontinelle

What is ethical investing? The definition depends on your personal beliefs. Ethical investing is highly subjective because each individual investor has different ideas about what constitutes ethical behavior by a company, and different priorities that they want to support with their investment dollars.

Broadly speaking, however, ethical investing is a way of earning returns in the financial markets by supporting companies that are creating positive change in the world, or, in some cases, that aren't creating positive change; but aren't making the world worse, either. Ethical investors want to reach their financial goals in ways that coincide with their values. Their investing decisions are usually part of an overall strategy for ethical living that includes making values-based decisions about work, housing, transportation and shopping, among other concerns.
