Investing in an ESG portfolio can build your wealth for retirement, just like a traditional investment does, but in a way that aligns with your own personal values. The companies that make up an ESG 401(k) portfolio have been screened to meet a certain set of non-financial indicators of their accountability like pollution-reducing measures, diversity in hiring and transparency in leadership. As investors, these companies promote initiatives that benefit their communities and the world as a whole.
When you invest in an ESG 401(k) portfolio, your money is working to help make the world a better place. You take part in a bigger movement, helping to initiate positive changes in the causes you believe in.
