Impact Invest­ments: a call for (re)orientation (2021)

Prac­ti­tio­ners and aca­de­mics have used various terms to descri­be invest­ments rela­ted to sus­taina­bi­li­ty. The latest infla­tio­na­ry term is “impact invest­ments” – invest­ments that focus on real chan­ge to sol­ve social chal­lenges and/​or miti­ga­te eco­lo­gi­cal dama­ge. To pro­vi­de (re)orientation from an aca­de­mic per­spec­ti­ve, a new typo­lo­gy for sus­tainable invest­ments was deri­ved for this publi­ca­ti­on.
