Island Savings

Socially responsible investing

Do well while you're doing good

As a credit union we value corporate social responsibility—we’re mindful that many of our members carefully consider the consequences every dollar they spend could have on the environment, on our communities, and the world. That’s why we provide a way to build your financial future in a way that protects your values through socially responsible investing (SRI).

SRI with Island Savings allows you to invest your money in companies committed to mitigating climate change without sacrificing potential investment gains. We offer fossil free investment options through Genus Capital Management. Only investments from companies that offer 100% fossil free portfolios are offered.

Advantages to socially responsible investing include:

  • You aren’t sacrificing your financial return in the name of social responsibility
    While the companies chosen by Genus Capital Management are screened to ensure they meet certain environmental standards, they are also required to meet a high standard of financial performance. Genus offers funds and portfolios from companies with attractive valuations, strong fundamentals and compelling competitive advantages.
  • You’re investing in yourself—and others
    SRI gives you the opportunity to meet your own, personal financial goals while looking out for the well-being of others. You’re investing in companies with a strong commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. The money you invest goes toward building a better world for many people.
  • You’re investing in a greener world for future generations
    The companies you support through SRI with us are dedicated to making lasting positive changes to their environmental policies and practices. Not only are you making a positive impact on your personal financial future, you’re helping to preserve the environment for generations to come.
