Impact Investing School has its purpose to help to

"Better Future" - manifested in achieving 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

In 2015, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The idea behind the Agenda is to achieve sustainable development for all life on this planet.

Impact investing is essentially all about giving 17 SDGs a boost. It's about making the right choice when investing: to contribute to the peace and prosperity of people and the planet, now and in the future.
I'm Svetlana: a sustainable finance expert, consultant, corporate trainer, keynote speaker and an unshakable activist, dedicated to helping you to transform your assets and corporate culture, in line with the SDGs.

2. Impact Investing creates a «deep impact» – transforming industries by investing in companies with a social and environmental purpose at the very heart of their business.

Sustainable investing generates more of a «broad impact» and applies ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) criteria into business models with their main purpose being to generate profit.
A shift of assets towards Impact and Sustainability themed Investing is essential to tackle global issues and achieve the SDGs.
