Defining Impact Investing, The Real Meaning

Defining Impact Investing, The Real Meaning

Tom Adams, head of Impact at Acumen, provides the “definitional clarity” to impact investing. He quotes from the World Economic Forum (WEF) report that specifically it defines impact investing as: “An investment approach that intentionally seeks to create both financial return and positive social or environmental impact that is actively measured”.

With the resolved meaning of impact investing, Adams hope that people, businesses and organizations invest in the right time, thought and conversation into enhancing how we collectively do all these things. He writes, “Doing so should in turn make a better case for, and thus help drive, the scale of finances we all long for.”
