What is Impact Investing?
Impact investing is a proactive investing approach which allows capital to be redirected towards companies intentionally pursuing positive Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) activities that address today’s most pressing challenges.
Is ESG not enough?
Positive ESG can be synonymous with positive impact if there is ‘Intention’: it means there is a strategic purpose in a company’s ESG activities. Simply avoiding negative ESG practices and complying to the status quo are not enough to create change.
WHY IMPACT INVESTING NOW?
Climate change, the health pandemic, global inequalities and other areas of concern are challenging our current economic system; More than ever, we need solutions intentionally created to achieve a greener and more equal economy, while minimizing negative risks on the environment and society.
In response to the current needs, impact investments are attracting accelerated capital inflows and are even sometimes outperforming their mainstream peers because they are better able to mitigate financial risks now and in the future.
Companies that are not integrating ESG into their strategic objectives risk further pushback from employees, customers, regulators and investors. If we reward the other companies that are making positive efforts, traditional business models will shift towards purpose.
