Cooking the Books with Frances Cook and Pathfinder CEO John Berry

Each week BusinessDesk and the NZ Herald’s Cooking the Books podcast tackles a different money problem. This podcast is about how to invest smartly, while accusations of greenwashing run rampant. Hosted by Frances Cook.

"Something I get asked about a lot is ethical investing, and whether it’s possible to make money without making the world a worse place says Francis "My answer is a resounding yes. I truly believe that many of the best investments, with good profits, are ethical ones. It’s tricky though, because many companies would like to be seen to be doing good without putting in the work."

Find out about some recent companies that got into hot water with the Australian authorities, how to look for greenwashing, why Pathfinder divested in BlackRock and how you get the best bang for your buck, while sleeping well at night.
