A bit more on the pursuit of Sustainable investing, albeit US focused:
U.S. Investors Continue to Endorse Sustainable Investing

Last year’s record for flows was broken in July.
Mentioned: Brown Advisory Tax Exempt Bond Investor (BIAEX) , TIAA-CREF Core Impact Bond Retail (TSBRX) , iShares ESG Aware MSCI EAFE ETF (ESGD) , iShares ESG Aware MSCI USA ETF (ESGU) , American Century Sustainable Equity Inv (AFDIX) , Invesco Solar ETF (TAN) , iShares Global Clean Energy ETF (ICLN)
Sustainable funds in the United States have attracted a record $30.7 billion in net flows so far in 2020. It only took until July this year for sustainable funds to garner more flows than they did in all of 2019, and last year’s $21.4 billion net flow was itself 4 times higher than in any previous year. This year, flows have been averaging about $10 billion per quarter. For the third quarter, estimated net flows totaled $9.8 billion, representing 10% of overall U.S. fund flows.

Dod would probably be quick to point out that it's also very small at £45M capitalisation, with a larger spread between buying and selling prices (10p), and the charges are a bit high at AMC: 0.7% plus OC: 1.6%.
So, it could be a case of go for JGC, OR top up IEM (which is less into the stocks I'm really after), OR go for the ETF INRG which has an even lower yield at 0.58%, and has gone up significantly, but better holds the stocks I am after. Currently, I think the choices are in reverse order, i.e. I favour the latter most.
I continue to look at the above trusts (all at currently high prices), though in the knowledge that I do already have some exposure through: IEM and BERI.
