Sustainable Investing: Here’s how to check the animal-friendliness of your investments

If you’re anything like me, you spent Easter weekend being barraged with adorable images of bunnies, lambs, chicks, kittens and puppies in your Facebook, Instagram and emails. And if you’re like me, this cuteness overload, interspersed with images of headless chocolate rabbits, put you in an especially animal-friendly frame of mind. I’ve given my cats an extra pet, set out birdseed for the backyard avian inhabitants, and, yes, reviewed my investment portfolio to determine how “cruelty-free” I really am.

While the environment and social investment causes like diversity and human rights tend to get the lion’s share of press, for the creature kind among us it doesn’t hurt to take a moment out of a post-Easter candy binge to think about how we can invest in a way that protects Peter Cottontail, Donald Duck and Foghorn Leghorn, not to mention Fido and Fluffy.
