Sustainable investing has become increasingly attractive to investors driven by a desire to align their values with investment goals. But with so many providers and investment options out there, it can be difficult to know where to begin and how to measure real impact. With the added uncertainty about regulations, greenwashing and complexities to navigate in ESG ratings, we hear from investment gurus on: what's holding back investment and innovation? What are the most effective strategies for evaluating the environmental impact and financial performance of green investments? What can be done to overcome the perception that green investments offer a lower return? And how are investors staying ahead of the curve to maximise their impact and returns?
