IMPACT MONDAY / Responsible investments: how to combine return & real impact?

On the 14th of January Patrick Somerhausen and Céline Bouton introduced the concept of ‘sustainable investing’.

As Patrick Somerhausen is the co-CEO of Funds for Good, it is safe to say he knows a thing or two about sustainable investing. This company develops and sells socially responsible savings and investment products. They reinvest part of their profit and their time in supporting unemployed people becoming entrepreneurs. Céline Bouton draws from her experience as manager at LITA.co, a crowdfunding platform which connects individuals wishing to give a sense of purpose to their money and companies that have a demonstrable positive impact on our society.

During this interactive Impact Monday session, Patrick and Céline combined their expertise to answer all our questions: What is the difference between traditional investing and sustainable investing? What do you need to bear in mind if you want to invest in projects or enterprises with a positive societal impact? How can you invest in an impactful enterprise? And how can you benefit of the tax-shelter and reduce your taxes by investing ethically?
