Is Your Retirement Funds Making Climate Change Worse?

AN INTERACTIVE ABOUT SUSTAINABLE INVESTING



By removing the biggest carbon emitters from the S&P 500 you would actually end up not only saving the planet, but also make greater investment returns (*counting 2005 - 2019). Me and my team got the exciting opportunity to create this interactive using Refinitiv’s data to spread awareness about sustainable investing.

Each dot of the visualization represents a company in the S&P 500 that animates as the reader scrolls through the article.

The interactive was adapted for mobile, with the data viz fixed in the background and the text boxes scrolling over it following the user’s swipe movement.











Scolling the textboxes up the page activates the data viz to animate and visualise the written content.  








The calculator display what your returns would have been since 2005 had you excluded the biggest carbon emitters.
