All investing has an impact. But is it positive or destructive? Impact and Sustainable Investors are an essential part of the capital markets ecosystem. In this session, we will explore how asset owners can wield a powerful tool to address the world’s greatest challenges including climate action and an energy transition to a low carbon economy, empowering women and people of color to be engaged in economic growth, working towards sustainable food systems, education, healthy oceans, and water security. Understanding the complexity and interrelationships of these goals is essential to achieving strong investment and social returns simultaneously. With the analysis of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors, we can do this! And investors, whether professional or individual, can achieve both profit and purpose. Join Erika Karp, Executive Managing Director and Chief Impact Officer at Pathstone, and Ibrahim AlHusseini, Founder of The Husseini Group and Full Cycle Climate Partner, as they talk about the current and future landscape of impact investing.
