Do you know where your money goes? Ethical banking - finding a way to match your money with your morals. 
Where the money in your bank actually goes is not something many people think about. The numbers in your account on your banking app are just that. Numbers on a screen. However, traditional banks will use your money, and everyone else’s to invest in companies and projects. This is where those numbers on a screen become less abstract and more of a choice about what you are supporting indirectly with your money. The status quo in traditional finance means investing in many things harmful to the planet, particularly the fossil fuel industry. The latest Banking on Climate Chaos 2021 report finds that Barclays and HSBC are two of the worst fossil fuel financiers in Europe. With ethical banking, you can manage your finances without worrying that your money is supporting industries that damage the environment and practices that are harmful to the world. Green Wallet aims to be at the forefront of ethical banking and allow customers to feel assured that their values are being met with their banking provider.
