As a company Ethical Investment Advisers (EIA) likes to walk the talk and we have taken the decision to use some of the profits from our company to help improve the environment and help in a socially responsible manner.
Community organisations apply for zero-interest loans to pay for projects such as installing solar panels and improving energy efficiency. The resultant savings on energy/fuel bills cover the loan repayments into the revolving fund, ie. reducing their carbon footprint at no cost to themselves. To help reduce emissions immediately, EIA has donated to help fund these projects.
We have also made some loans to women in the Asia Pacific who are trying to start up small businesses. The loans have been made through Good Return (GR). The organisation sources women looking for assistance to set small businesses and ‘investors’ who will give them micro-finance to get started. We have helped 6 women; 2 are from Nepal, 1 from the Philippines, 2 are from East Timor and 1 is from Tonga. EIA thought that by making it a loan, the money can be recycled over and over again and help far more people over time.
