Positive Impact Business and Finance
Abstract Positive Impact Business (PIB) has to be integrated into the mainstream strategy of Industry and Services, since the growth of the population to 9 billion by 2050 will create great business opportunities. PIB will need to address the market with the basic needs of the population (housing, access to energy and water, food security, transportation, health, education), while consideration of the limits of the Planet will require new technologies and business models. But the main hurdle (and that is the Environmental and Social primary responsibility of the finance community) shall be the huge anticipated long-term finance gap, at a time when the United Nations estimates the need for annual investment of between $1300billion and $9600billion. Fundamentally, that is what the creation of a successful new long-term debt PIB asset class is about.
