Impact investing means investing in companies, organizations and funds with the aim of generating measurable, positive effects on the environment or society in addition to financial returns. The influence is made visible, measured and continuously reported on.
Climate change and its consequences are considered to be the greatest challenge in human history. In order to achieve a reversal trend for an environmentally friendly future, a joint effort from various areas is required.
The demand to specifically drive social and ecological progress through investment decisions is getting louder
More and more institutional and private investors are asking themselves this question. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals contain 17 goals for the development of our planet by 2030.
Since 2016, these goals have been legally binding for United Nations member states. What all goals have in common is the search for solutions to global challenges and megatrends.
The financial sector also makes a significant contribution to the targeted management of assessments and investments with impact investing.
