Impact investing (also known as Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), Environmental, Social, and Governance Investing (ESG), mission-driven investing, etc.) refers to investments that offer a social return in addition to a financial return. These investments are often made through community development financial institutions, nonprofits, and some for-profit social enterprises. Impact investors organize themselves around impact areas that are important to them - some examples include investing in education, the environment, small businesses, women, healthcare, as well as investing into specific local communities.
