The 4 Top Impact Measures To Integrate Into The Investment Process:​

  • Financial. Governments and companies that are mission-driven to be positively impactful bring those principles in their work cultures, operations and long-term planning, leading them to tend to outperform peers.  They recognize maintaining strong, durable financial returns and generating positive outcomes requires being farsighted in the implications of today's decisions.

  • Environmental. The various approaches in assessing and measuring environmental impact reflects the importance managers and investors are placing on this critical area.  Being environmentally cognizant can demonstrably improve financial returns and reduce regulatory risks.

  • Social.  Today, when impressions can be made and opinions shaped at the speed of a click, investment and business decisions must consider social and political impacts on brand and reputation.  Those that do are more likely to capitalize on opportunities overlooked by others and avoid reputation-risk.
