Driving positive change (not buying GME)

Yes, this isnt about buying GME or any of the meme stocks, but the whole situation got me thinking that we could be driving a change for good especially in the clean energy sector.

I know I hold a few energy companies with PHE being my biggest holding by share amount and ill be adding to it in the future.

What clean energy companies are you holding and do you think markets could drive the change?

Kinda related I’ve been looking at iShares set of SRI / ESG ETFs recently.

The have USA / Europe / Japan / EM / World.

Basically just stocks that don’t fuck up the planet or people.

As well as some of the ESG funds that @phildawson mentions, I own NextEra Energy. Their company website is interesting. They make a rather bold claim

We believe that no
company in any
industry has done
more to reduce
carbon emissions
and to confront
climate change than
NextEra Energy.

My holding on NEE is up 46% in GBP terms since July 2019.

Also, iShares Global Clean Energy UCITS ETF is held by over 58,000 people on this platform and is one of the 10 most popular investments.

Ooh could we create a sort of Positive Change Pie, or should we just buy KIT?
