Impact Investing: an emerging financial sector
Nicolas Hazard, CEO of Le Comptoir de l'Innovation, introduces the readers of Décisions Durables to a new segment of finance: impact investing.
Nicolas Hazard analyzes the steps that led to the development of a new segment of finance called impact investing. This emerging sector combines financial return and social return on investment. Impact investing companies must be profitable while aiming at maximizing their social, societal or environmental impact.
Impact investing should not to be confused with the Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) which values corporate social responsibility, but is not intended to address social and environmental issues.
