In the existing investment process (including the ESG filter), the concept of sustainability in the narrower sense (ESG Bottom-up) is considered extensively. The focus here is on the identification and avoidance of negative effects, resp. a reduction of ESG risks (as a factor premium).
In the Impact Investing extended sustainability analysis, the screening for positive impact is an additional dimension to achieve positive social and environmental impacts in addition to financial returns.This dimension is missing and cannot be reported in a satisfying way. Impact investing goes beyond ESG and has a deep effect on the assesed (mapped) SDGs.
