Impact investing is a concept that has been popularized by the United Nations since it was first introduced in 2015. Most people have heard about it but are not really sure what it entails. Impact investments go beyond just making money and can have a social or environmental purpose. They can either make money or lose money, but they should always create some kind of change for society or the environment.
