Vision

Money has a large impact on people and our society. Not only is money an internationally accepted method of payment, it is also often the cause of injustice and inequality.

This is in part due to the fact that money does not lie idle in the bank. Money under the mattress or in the piggybank does not move, in the sense that for years at a time it is not spent. But money that is put in a savings account or an investment fund circulates around the globe and is invested in various activities.

The 'bad news' is that billions of dollars are invested in controversial weapons, military dictatorships, and companies that do not pay attention to human rights or environmental standards. The 'good news' is that money is also invested in projects that benefit people and the environment. Think for example of renewable energy, energy efficiency, international cooperation, culture and education, or nature protection.

FairFin supports sustainability, and strives for a just world. We believe that money can be used to create a society that benefits people and the environment. FairFin encourages people to take responsibility for the impact of their money. For this reason the organization promotes investments that are beneficial to people and the environment, and campaigns against damaging investments.

Banks, companies, organisations and individuals can all make a difference. They can deal responsibly with their money, and consciously choose investments that make a contribution to a sustainable society.

In practice, this choice can be implemented through opening (or offering) sustainable saving accounts, and through the direct (or indirect) investment in sustainable projects, or to a lesser extent through using sustainability criteria when investing on the stock exchange.

FairFin informs, raises awareness, researches, publicises, advises, trains, and takes action for a sustainable approach to money, and offers financial products to individuals, organisations, companies and the government.
