Impact Investing laid bare
Making a positive difference to our green(ing) future should be the key driver for most of us and particularly the private sector. A focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors to help inform decision making is vitally important. Impact investing should be a tangible goal that delivers, and shows it is doing so.
There needs to be a standard system to collectively report ESG implementation and impact. The Johannesburg Stock Exchange recently released its Sustainability and Climate Disclosure Guidance that aims to promote transparency and good governance, and guide listed companies on best practice.
