Increasingly the future vision is replacing some old certainties right across the investment world.  No longer do the world’s biggest investment funds invest in carbon heavy industries, instead they look for the innovations that hold out a vision of the future, better recovery of water, clean energy and medical advances, to name just a few. That is what is meant by sustainable or positive impact investments.  They offer opportunities for future, long term profit. No one ever came to me for advice and said they wanted to lose money, they first and foremost want a good return for themselves and their loved ones. I never really thought of myself as a capitalist but recognise that, whether the capital comes from individuals, governments or Global business, that is what it takes to make good ideas work. Bringing together capital, innovators, regulations and good corporate governance can start to build a better society.
