After five years of Equity Mates and three years of Get Started Investing we’ve built a back catalogue of more than 700 episodes.

Bitesize is our opportunity to share some of our favourite moments, lessons and quotes from both Equity Mates and Get Started Investing.

Today it's some of our highlights from our ESG basics episode from 2019. This investment approach takes into account environmental, social, governance, and ethical issues in the investment process, contributing positively to society and the environment while earning financial returns. Negative screening avoids investments in controversial activities, positive screening invests in companies demonstrating responsible ESG practices, and impact investing aims to generate measurable social and environmental benefits.

Several ETFs, such as BetaShares Australian Sustainability Leaders ETF and VanEck Vectors MSCI International Sustainable Equity ETF, are available for ethical investors. It's vital to understand the different types of ethical investing and choose investments that align with your values.
