About this blog

Society is quickly reaching a critical point on Earth. For far too long we have been focusing on irresponsible economic growth, increasing income inequality and extensive pollution of nature and exploration of natural resources.

We need to quickly reverse this trend and focus on actions that can save the planet and society. This blog is for you that want to be part of this journey. You, as a person and as an investor, have the power to make the right decisions and invest your money where it can make an impact and revert the current trend.

At Your Green Wealth, we want to bring a series of articles and posts where we will show you how to make more green and sustainable investment decisions and how to “clean” your portfolio.

The opportunities are already out there, and they are accessible for small and medium investors.

Below we explain a few of those options:
ESG Investing

ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Governance.

ESG investments are mainly focused on securities and related asset classes: stocks, ETFs and indexes. The ESG rating is assessed based on how well a company is performing on environmental, social and governance criteria.

ESG investing is mainly applicable to public listed companies and therefore can represent a large share of the investment market.

Impact Investing

Different than ESG investing, impact investing has a dedicated purpose of creating an impact in society or on the environment.

The impact is a crucial part of the mission and business model of the company.

Impact investing is a much smaller market. Individual investors can benefit from crowdfunding investment opportunities.

About the author

Fernando

Hi, I’m Fernando. I have always been interested in green energy, sustainability, and finance.

In my professional career, I have been developing and executing projects in the energy industry for more than 12 years. 

I’m a business developer with a background in engineering and experience in finance. I have worked with most of the clean energy solutions, from natural gas to biomass, from hydro power to offshore wind.

On the personal side, I have been interested in alternative ways of investing my savings. One should not be limited to standard offerings and investment options from large banks and pension funds. 

With a little bit of research, you can find attractive alternatives with good returns, reasonable risk levels, and, more importantly, investments that bring a positive impact to society and to the environment.
