Australian Ethical Investment
Australian Ethical is a financial services company with a difference. All client money is invested according to the Australian Ethical Charter, meaning that Australian Ethical avoids investments that harm people, animals and the planet and seeks out investments that will create positive, sustainable change for society and the environment. Australian Ethical integrates the principles of B Corporations across its entire business, not just its investment products. The company?s stakeholders include people, clients, shareholders and ultimately, the world. Australian Ethical is publicly listed on the Australian Stock Exchange but manages to donate 10% of profits to good causes as part of an annual Community Grants program. Australian Ethical aims to be a best of breed business that creates positive impact for all its stakeholders and looks to promote a shift in attitudes and behaviour so that all investment has an ethical purpose alongside the pursuit of competitive financial returns. Established almost 30 years ago, Australian Ethical has always been a pioneer in the investment industry and there was a natural alignment between the B Corp movement and our corporate values. Through our investments, we are trying to help build capacity for ethical businesses and by becoming a certified B Corporation we wished to support and grow a community promoting better business for a better world.
