The concept of impact investing represents an aspiring investment approach to tackle some of the most urgent global challenges, such as climate change. An impact investment is defined as an investment that creates an ecological or social return alongside financial return. In essence, it’s an investment that is designed to make the world a better place – while also making you money.
This approach is powerful because it channels into economic activities that create a positive, measurable social and environmental impact on the planet and its people. In doing so, it applies rigorous financial analysis to invest in companies or projects that can sustain themselves and flourish, such that they deliver a financial return. The duality of sustainability and financial return is thereby self-reinforcing.
