Responsible investment is an umbrella term encompassing the approaches used to deliberately incorporate environmental social and governance (ESG) considerations into investing. Impact Investing is one of these approaches used to advance the social goals of an investor. Through impact investing, investors can pursue competitive investment returns while achieving measurable social and environmental impacts.
