“Even if you are completely outside the world of finance, you still have a retirement account, insurance and all sorts of products that rely on this sector; and it’s simply looking at what type of impact your dollars have when invested. It’s not just about financial returns, it’s also about social and environmental returns.” ~ Laura Brenner Kimes
