Over two decades ago we launched a single mutual fund backed with the conviction that you can make money and make a difference in the world—a concept that was a little unconventional at the time. Since then, an entire industry has grown around that simple idea, and more and more investors have come around to our way of thinking.
According to US SIF, sustainable, responsible and impact investments now make up one-fifth of all assets under professional management in the United States. More investors than ever understand that investment strategies based on social and environmental standards can produce competitive returns. The question now being asked is, “what impact are these investments having?”
Today, we stand at a pivotal moment in the history of our field, as we work to assess and document the impacts we have had on the lives of people and the health of our planet. We are very happy to release the Domini Funds 2017 Impact Report, detailing how we create positive change through standards setting, advocacy, and fixed-income community investing.
