Impact investing is a growing field of investment that intentionally creates positive social or environmental impacts as well as a financial return, and measures both. It challenges the long-held view that social and environmental issues are best addressed through philanthropic donations, and that market investments should focus exclusively on achieving financial goals. Impact investing combines the best of both capital and values-based principles to create a triple-bottom line: good financial social and environmental returns.
Impact investing has tremendous potential to help address some of our most entrenched societal issues. Countries, including Australia, face growing gaps between demand for social services and what governments can afford. As a result, governments, businesses and communities are now seeking new solutions, as well as effective new ways to finance and deliver them at scale.
