Sustainable, Responsible and Impact Investing (SRI) is a term that encompasses the socially responsible investing industry as a whole, while ethical investing, ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance), and impact investing are particular types of SRI.
Ethical Investing filters out harmful companies involved in industries like tobacco or gambling.
ESG investing pushes for general social good by further screening companies for various environment, social and corporate governance policies.
Impact Investing is a more focused strategy based on a particular social initiative, such as disease eradication.
Swell is considered a form of impact investing that falls under SRI investing.
