Do I have to sacrifice returns to be an Impact Investor?

The answer is, emphatically, no. 

The idea that impact investing requires a sacrifice on returns is an outdated notion. In fact, the oldest US stock index using environmental and social considerations has clearly shown that ESG can actually create added value. In fact, since its birth in 1990, the Domini Social Index (DSI)—now known as the MSCI KLD Social 400 Index—has outperformed both the S&P 500 and the Russell 3000 on an actual and risk-adjusted basis for 25 years.
