Many investors think impact investing is the same as following ESG (environmental, social and governance) guidelines. Following ESG guidelines is the minimum requirement for a business to be called sustainable.

But to actively pursue a positive and measurable impact with investing is something that should really be called impact investing – and sustainable investing.
