Impact Investing

Historically, investment capital has flowed predominantly toward companies and organizations run by white men and companies that prioritize short-term profit over the long-term health of people and the planet. A shift, however, is underway in the investment world. Impact investing is the practice of investing for positive social and environmental impacts plus a return on investment. Impact investments are helping heal the environment, strengthen marginalized communities, and spread better business practices — all while diversifying the recipients of investment dollars.
