1. What is Impact Investing?
Impact investing is an investment approach that seeks to generate positive social impact, as well as a financial return. It typically involves investing in businesses or organizations whose primary mission is to make a positive impact on the world. Examples of impact investments include investing in renewable energy, affordable housing and small businesses that promote economic development. Impact investors can measure the impact their investment has made by using impact metrics such as carbon reduction, job creation, improved access to education or health care services.
