Brighton area named as positive investor hotspot
By Brighton and Hove Independent
Brighton and Hove and nearby Lewes are among the UK’s top areas for positive investment.
A report by Ethex (www.ethex.org.uk), the first online exchange for positive investors, found that local residents in the city and neighbouring town – grouped together for the purposes of the study – have invested £1.2 million in local community projects and businesses since 2012.
The Make Money Do Good study was launched to coincide with national Good Money Week, which runs from Sunday until October 25. And it revealed that local community-owned renewable energy schemes have played a major role in making Brighton and Lewes leading hotspots.
