Global warming, overpopulation, the biodiversity crisis... the world we live in is in a state of emergency. This is not just an ecological problem; it is an economic problem as well. The state of the natural world impacts - and is impacted by - human society. Our actions have long-term consequences, so we must be wise in the choices we make, not least in the companies/practices we support through our investment decisions. In The Ethical Investor's Handbook, author Morten Strange connects the dots, to show how economics and finance play a direct role in perpetuating this crisis. What can we as individual investors do to avoid wrecking the Earth while growing our wealth? How can we navigate the capital allocation space without compromising our ethical values? It can be done - some of the Big Boys have done it - and this invaluable new book shows us how. Delving into topics such as alternative energy sources, conservation and natural capital, The Ethical Investor's Handbook offers practical advice on how to build a sustainable green portfolio that reaps handsome returns. There are pitfalls and stranded assets to avoid, but also new opportunities if you know where to find them. Do-gooders, with the right understanding of the issues at hand, can make a good buck!

Review quote

Strange is articulate, has a great sense of understanding of the subject and a good turn of phrase, combined with the financial rigour, to tackle one of the key challenges facing investors who are not convinced by climate change ... I would thoroughly recommend this book!

- Lawrence Gosling, Editor-in-chief, WhatInvestment (UK)

It is a thoughtful reflection on what is leading us down the path to ecological meltdown, a mirror against which to determine what is `ethical', and a practical framework on deciding what to invest in, how to do it, and why it is worth a try."-Dr Shawn Lum, President, Nature Society (Singapore)

About Morten Strange

Morten Strange (born 1952, Denmark) is a Singapore-based IBF-certified independent financial analyst. Since becoming salary-independent and retiring at the age of 33, he has pursued his interests in economics and finance, writing, photography, and environmental conservation. He is the author of Be Financially Free: How to Become Salary Independent in Today's Economy (2016, Marshall Cavendish).

"Be Financially Free by `citizen economist' Morten Strange is not just a good book, it is a fantastic piece of entertainment, common sense economics, and wisdom about life, and how to achieve financial independence, and to `live', as Pablo Picasso said, `as a poor man with lots of money'. Strange will not win a Nobel Prize with Be Financially Free, but he has my respect for having written a highly readable, funny and cynical financial essay, which actually makes sense."

- Dr Marc Faber (Gloom Boom & Doom Report)
