Background

Investments have returns and impact, often as is intended, but quite often also in ways that we may not be so aware of at first. In some cases, the side effects of the investment choices we make can be easily described as positive externalities, helping to avoid a poverty trap, resulting an innovative breakthrough or otherwise resulting in positive impact that is typically neglected in standard financial decision making. In other cases, however, the impact is negative, and can lead to serious harm to society and the environment.
