The rise of ESG – Environment, Social, Governance – has been a guiding principle for global investors and institutions. But the disruption to society forced by the health crisis has created a greater focus on the “S”, bringing social aspects to the fore. There has been a significant growth in investor demand for responsible investment and impact strategies that target positive environmental and social benefits in addition to market-rate returns. Impact investing is now on the agenda for investors and occupiers, but what does this mean in practical terms? What are the key drivers and the key strategies? What are the main trends in the market? What are the opportunities and what are the challenges? How easy is it to measure the impact of a specific strategy? What are the key sectors that fit an impact strategy?

To what extent has our understanding of impact investing changed during the pandemic?
