Investing for Environmental and Social Benefits
Impact investors seek to generate environmental and social impacts in addition to financial returns. This one-day seminar introduces you to how markets can solve critical social and environmental challenges. While this approach has long been used within the public sector and by NGOs, commercial investors are increasingly embracing this strategy in fields such as energy, water, community development, health, sustainable development, and education. The course draws upon principles of finance, theories of change, public policy, and investment management to evaluate specific cases and investment tools.
