Earthwatch (Europe)'s investment policy aims to protect the real value of the capital using socially and environmentally responsible investments while providing a reasonable income return.
Earthwatch (Europe)'s current policy is to retain funds as cash and place them on deposit with the Charities Aid Foundation in a high interest bearing account. In the longer term we are working towards a policy of investing surplus reserves in socially and environmentally responsible funds. Our Chief Operating Officer is responsible for implementing this policy, after approval by our board of trustees.
We also use a pension provider which offers an ethical choice of funds for staff to invest in through their stakeholder pensions.
Earthwatch uses socially and environmentally responsible investments.
