Moving from ‘good impact deals’ to ‘systems change’
Alexandra Korijn, Enclude
The good news is that, increasingly, investors are deploying capital to businesses and aggregated vehicles, realising both financial returns, and positive social and environmental impact. The evidence is out that it is possible to realise both, and that there is not necessarily a trade-off between the two. The question we are now asking ourselves is whether we are actually changing the systems in which these enterprises and vehicles operate. This panel will discuss the various strategies and tools that investors are taking to try to move from making these ‘good deals’ to ‘changing systems’.
