• Here’s the dictionary definition (so to speak): Impact Investing means investing in companies, organizations, and funds with the intention of generating social or environmental impact, while also making money in the process.
  • Another way of saying it (and a bit less boring too): The whole point of impact investing is to use money and investments for good, instead of only thinking about profit. 
  • Fun fact: While Impact Investing has origins that go back to the biblical times, the first real modern example of  responsible investing success was during Apartheid in South Africa. It is believed that due to massive divestment from companies doing business in South Africa in 1993 ($625 billion worth), Apartheid was successfully defeated and led to a new constitution and the release of Nelson Mandela from prison.
