The Ethical Finance Hub will help to raise awareness, develop new ethical finance products and services and increase access to finance for individuals and organisations.

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
