a start up in russia that makes just that possible. this is the business of god as welcome whether you are managing a loss portfolio or just put some savings into an index fund more and more of us want to know where that money ends up investors with a conscience prefer to put their money in so our energies they all reject offense called tractors or big oil there are many choices these days but what about it. it's not often that bankers support people who climb trees and insult police officers but that was the case in how behind forest the occupiers wanted to prevent the clearing of the forest for an open cast lignite mine operated by the energy company r. w. e. a corporate governance expert at deakin investment urge our deputy to be prudent and far sighted the time when investors focus solely on returns seems to be over

more and more investors want to know where their money ends up they prefer renewable energies and reject environmental destruction and arms trading while sustainable investment funds so-called green funds still accounted for a volume of twelve billion u.s. dollars and twenty thirteen this volume is growing rapidly this year the ratings agency moody's already expects two hundred fifty billion dollars the good news is that high returns often go very well with environmental protection social responsibility and good corporate governance in london for example fund manager charlie thomas invests large sums for his clients in sustainable investments when i took over found in two thousand and three there were strangely ten companies what you could say is that how that's changed. in the last kind of fifteen years that we've now it's four hundred percent increase in the number of countries that we can invest in so those are companies providing solutions that could be water could be way sic a renewal energy energy efficiency so if that doesn't look like
12:19 pm
a bank so far we have yes why wouldn't. climate risks for example play an increasingly important role in the selection process environmental pollution and workers' rights are also important factors on the deck of funds opposition to our presence in the humbucker forests shows that something is changing in the financial sector still the investment company doesn't want to part with arguably shares instead it wants to have a constructive and critical impact on the company's management. but let's talk a bit more about sustainable investment i'm now joined by nina laws that she works for a finance watch and enjoy all that wants investors to shift their portfolio and to also stay noble direction in cannot make any serious money with a sustainable investment. well of course all investors would like to have locks in return and minimum risk but of course when we discuss stable finest topic we really should also change totally our mindset because environment is providing so many
12:20 pm
value to the people because our economic system depends on environment and natural resources so even if the market is not able to give value surprise to those environmental gurus they really give a lot of t.t.t. to investors and people generally so we think that in first place it's very important to have a different perception of what a return means in the context of say nable fine and so it's a financial return but also financial rituals and also we see that for example when looking specifically at the financials the main showing that the green bonds before more were arrested stand are bonds but we don't have to forget the. bond markets and sustainable financial products still represent a very small share in the market so unfortunately this is to do need to the fact that the current to market policies are not so strong enough to create the
12:21 pm
right economic incentives and because of there will be only an issue mark used for the sustainable financial products we need to mainstream files in the sense. of buying some investors in your spirit is really ready now to put principles over profits because you said there might not perform as well as traditional investments . well let's say that the pressure on banks and financial institutions is coming now from a different perspective because we know that environmental issues and especially climate change are going to impact also the economic outlook so because of the climate change we expect growth in the future in this clearly means also longer is torn on the acids and climate change is a type of risk that cannot be diversified it will affect all our economy and in this sounds. very interrupt is this just is this just about the environment or is
12:22 pm
the. investors looking into other aspects of their investment as well well it's not only of course about environment of focus and of course national climate change because if we don't address the problem of climate change it's very difficult will seek to address let's say social issues solve for example gratian strictly linked to climate change so climate change is kind of priority in descents because it will also help to address social issues a but if we think for example governance we believe that to good governance or expected for labor rights human rights and know that subversion this should be the common practice so yes we are happy to see investment also focus that area but for us that should be the regular case you know as it is thank you very much thank you. after the us midterms the new head of the financial services
