If you really care about building a better world, put your money where your intentions are. If you believe in building a better world, consider investing your money into green initiatives that will benefit your pocketbook and your beliefs.
If you have some money to invest, and you are not afraid of taking risks, you can look into green startups. When looking into a startup, you should only invest money you can afford to lose. Some startups succeed, but many do fail.
You are going to want to look for startups whose principles and ideas are built around being environmentally friendly. For example, a startup that creates some sort of energy savings product or a startup that helps create solar energy in innovative new ways.
Investing in a startup can provide you with a great return if the green startup succeeds.
Second, you can invest in businesses that are driving by a sustainable mission or product. You can invest in companies that already exist and that have successful green products or missions. You can invest in companies that are already traded publicly, such as a business that creates hydroelectricity or creates window power electricity or creates sustainable products.
You can also invest in companies that dedicate part of their profits towards environmentally friendly nonprofits and initiatives. There are lots of companies that publicly trade stock that is dedicated to business practices that are designed to help the environment.
If you already invest in bonds, you should consider investing in green bonds. With a green bond, you are investing in money that is going to fund environmentally friendly products. As with most types of bonds, green bonds are designed to be low risk and provide you with a small return on your investment. This is a great way to make a little money with generally a guaranteed return on your investment.
With green bonds, you are usually providing funding to projects that really need a short-term infusion of cash. This is a great way to directly fund projects where you will get paid back for your efforts quickly while also supporting something you believe in.
If you want to create a better future, you need to start investing your money based on your interests and beliefs. As a safe investment, try out green bonds or investing in companies' stock that supports green initiatives and products. For a risker investment, consider investing in green startups.
