Read all about it- Impact Investing in the New York Times

As I mentioned in a previous post, we spent time this spring at a few different conferences, analyzing some new trends that will shape the futures of small farmers worldwide.   Of course we know that credit and financing- or lack there of–  limits the ability for small farmers to grow their businesses, make invesments in farm operations, achieve the quality and quanity requirements of major markets, and earn a viable income.

Triple bottom line investing, or impact investing, is an investment strategy (quickly becoming an industry in and of itself) that’s  merging the desire for return on investment with measurable social and environmental impact objectives (have a look at a past post here).

We were happy to read a New York Times article this week highlight this growing trend and giving some solid background information on its evolution – enjoy!
