At Bloom Impact Investing, we see a future where a carbon-free economy allows people and the planet to thrive. 

The World faces a unique challenge unlike any we’ve seen before. According to The United Nations, the global community must limit global warming to 1.5C in order to avoid the most extreme consequences of climate change. Unique challenges require unique solutions- this is where Bloom Impact Investing fits in.

 

Who We Are

At Bloom, we’re focusing on the impact money can have in the fight against climate change.  We see a world where people can easily own and invest in the clean energy transition, so that they can grow their wealth while shaping a better future for them and generations to come. Because alone, we might not feel rich enough to make a difference, but collectively our money has power. When we collectively chose sustainable finance options, and we collectively invest in companies that do good, we cast a vote for the world we want to live in.

Little by little, one super and one portfolio at a time, we send a strong signal to financial markets and companies. We tell them that we want all companies to have strong ethical, environmental and governance standards. It's like saying no to fast fashion - but with your finances.

 

We are a growing community with a common purpose in mind- to put the money-power to address climate change and the benefits of the clean energy transition back in the hands of all Australians.

The Bloom twist is to offer the knowledge, means and support necessary to make all this easy and fun. 

 

What We Think

 

In order to limit a global warming to 1.5°C, the world needs to invest around 2.4 trillion USD2010 annually in the energy system until 2035, that's about 2.5% of the world GDP. 

Bloom believes that by building a like-minded community of responsible investors and developing strong sustainable investment options, we can raise the bar for all financial services and create a domino effect in financial markets that will ultimately accelerate our path towards a greener and more inclusive economy. When you join us, you ask for financial markets to work for people and the planet, not the other way around! Together, we are calling for a clean money revolution.

 All of the technology we need to make a difference is already available, now all that’s left is for us to invest in it and use it.

 

Why It’s Important

 

With abundant sun, wind and world class renewable resource capacity, Australia is extremely well positioned to manage a transition to a completely sustainable and cheaper energy supply-cycle. Despite this, Australia is on track to produce fossil fuels accounting for 17% of global carbon emissions by the year 2030. In order to help bring about this change, it will be necessary for Australians to move their money out of the fossil fuel industry and choose to invest in options that will accelerate the growth of our renewable energy industries. If we succeed in backing the renewable energy industry,  Australia will become a Renewable Energy Superpower, creating millions of jobs in the process and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions.



 

This is Where You Come In!

 

The good news is, now you can join us! We’re in the process of creating accessible sustainable investment solutions, and we’ve made it easy for you to get involved in the meantime. By hosting regular webinars our goal is to inform our community about the power our money can make on climate change and start building the relationships that will allow us to grow into a strong movement going forward. As well as this, to make climate change and renewable energy investment something that everybody can understand, we’re developing resources for everyone to understand impact investing, sustainable finance and climate solutions. With these resources and events, you'll be surprised to learn how many impactful solutions you can be a part of.

 

Whether addressing climate change is something that you’re already passionate about or you’re just beginning to consider how you can invest in a more sustainable future for our planet, Bloom says ‘welcome, we’re stoked to have you with us’.
