How is your pension invested?
We are a wealthy Island and many people have private Pension Funds. We all have some control over how the money in the Pension Fund is invested, and opting for ethical and green investments is both easy and very effective.
Only those qualified to do so should be giving investment advice. However, please consider giving publicity to the notion that people could raise this idea with their Pension Fund managers.
I had this conversation with my Pension Fund managers a year ago. They were very receptive, and gave me good advice on switching to ethical and green investments that they recommended and met their criteria for suitability. It was all done within two weeks of the initial conversation.
Why the contribution is important
One of the biggest steps that an individual can take towards mitigating and halting the effects of Climate Change is through our money - not so much how we spend it, but how we invest it. Each of us can make a small step towards defunding fossil fuel companies, and all those small steps add up to one big message, saying that these companies have got to change and adapt, or they will die out.
