We’re maybe tired of hearing the word “sustainability” and all its variations. Its popularity is growing bigger around the globe. And yes, there’s a reason for it. 

We need to aim for a balanced and enduring impact on both the planet and society. 

It’s crucial for cooperatives and organizations to adopt practices that not only ensure their survival but also contribute to the greater good.

One such practice is sustainable financial management, a concept that Fairlight – a forward-thinking financial application, has taken to heart. This revolutionary app is redefining the approach to financial management software, particularly for cooperatives, by providing a platform that marries convenience and sustainability. 

By embedding sustainability into every facet of financial operations, Fairlight is fostering a culture of responsible and ethical financial practices, paving the way for a brighter, more sustainable future.

Let us tell you more about it in this blog post.

Sustainable Financial Management?

Let’s go straight to the point and decipher sustainable financial management. 

In essence, it involves making economic decisions that not only benefit the present but also safeguard the future, considering environmental, social, and governance factors. 

It’s like tending to a financial garden, ensuring resources are used wisely to yield lasting growth.

Financial Management for Sustainable Cooperatives and Organizations

For instance, imagine managing your finances like tending to a garden. You carefully select investments that contribute positively to the environment and society, just as you would choose seeds for a thriving garden.

By nurturing and protecting your financial “plants” over time, you create a sustainable and fruitful financial landscape for generations to come.

Businesses have started to understand the severity of the situation.

Recent data suggests that the adoption of sustainable financial management is becoming increasingly widespread. According to research conducted by the Global Sustainable Investment Alliance, sustainable investing assets now total $35.3 trillion, accounting for more than one-third of all global assets under management and representing a 15% increase over the past two years. 

Additionally, a 2021 report by Morningstar shows that sustainable funds attracted record inflows of $51.1 billion in 2020, more than double the previous record set in 2019. These figures highlight that sustainable financial management is not just a passing trend, but an integral part of contemporary investment strategies.
