Investing for Sustainability and Impact

If you are interested in sustainable investing, chances are you would like your investments to have an impact alongside competitive financial returns.
What we now call sustainable investing used to be mainly about avoiding the bad guys: tobacco companies, weapons manufacturers, the worst polluters, other "sin" stocks, and the like. Not everyone agreed on who the bad guys were, nor was there always an investment rationale for these exclusions. They were often more about aligning portfolios with an investors' values than they were about improving investment performance.
