Only for members: Skill Share Workshop: Impact Investment with Yova
Every investment has an impact, whether money is placed with a bank or in the stock market. Whilst your bank account could be financing an oil rig in the arctic sea without you knowing it, investing can also be a powerful driver of global sustainable development. By investing in companies that help solve global challenges, we can all support the objectives of the Paris Agreement and the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Thus, investments directed at the right companies are not only an effective tool to prepare for your financial future but also to make the world a better place. That’s what impact investing is about.
You will learn
– The do’s and don’ts about investing money
– How finance always has an impact on the world – whether it’s positive or negative
– What is impact investing and why it is important
– How the impact of investing can be assessed
– How to get started with investing – and how to do it sustainably
