In our latest edition of Wealth Matters we focus on sustainable investing. Goodbody Global Strategic Advisor Joe Prendergast asks how best we should invest for future generations?
“It is increasingly clear that our prospects for survival depend upon our ability to reduce dependency on fossil fuels, while also continuing to increase living standards globally. The challenge to fulfil the needs of current generations without compromising the needs of future generation is perhaps the clearest definition of, and rationale for, sustainability.”
