The Ethical Finance Hub  is focused on raising awareness, educating and facilitating practical activities (such as research, events and projects) that support the growth of the ethical finance sector.

This will help create a fairer, more inclusive and socially responsible financial system as well as improved environment, social and governance performances of businesses.

What do we do?

Our aim is to act as a catalyst for developing and growing the ethical finance market.

Ethical finance is a growing sector and we raise awareness around financial inclusion, social / environmental responsibility and choice.

Our platform provides space for business growth and a unique, centralised resource for accessing information about ethical finance.

We share market data and reports as well as facilitating the commissioning of research.

The ethical finance hub is a “wonderful idea and an extraordinary concept”.

Lady Susan Rice CBE, former MD, Lloyds Banking Group Scotland
