A new capital account has been launched by Zurich Insurance, called the Green Guaranteed Account. It offers returns based on stock market investments into green businesses.
The RBS Green Index lists only those organisations operating in the environmentally friendly categories, such as biotechnology, solar power, wind and water power etc. Investors in the Zurich Insurance account will have their capital protected whilst being in line for 100 percent of growth enjoyed within the sector.
A spokesman from Zurich Insurance felt this Green Guaranteed Account was ideal for investors who wanted to support the environment whilst earning a return on their investment.
