Sustainable investing with iShares ETFs and BlackRock funds

For those wishing to invest sustainably, and willing to take on the associated risks, ETFs and actively managed investment funds can help provide efficient, transparent market access.

Investors can usually identify sustainable investment companies by their PRI Seal. The UN’s PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment) is an investor initiative in partnership with the UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative which encourages signatories to use responsible investment to enhance returns and better manage risks. It lays out six voluntary and aspirational investment principles that offer guidance and support to its international network of signatories into incorporating ESG issues into investment and ownership decisions. Signatories undertake to uphold six principles for integrating ESG factors into their analysis and investment practices and to demand that companies adhere to these principles.
