Money

How we manage money — as consumers, politicians and business leaders — has the ability to greatly affect all the stakeholders in our local and global communities. When money is managed poorly, we see a rise in poverty levels, an increased disparity between the incomes of the rich and the poor, growth in business ventures that harm our environment, and a bevvy of other societal detriments. A segment of businesses and investors — those who are exclusively concerned with rapid financial gains — have certainly handled money in ways that have negatively impacted society in the past. Some continue to do so. But a rise in the popularity of conscientious business, investing and spending is beginning to tell a new story about money. A positive story.

Modern consumers are more interested than ever before in voting with their dollars and understanding the widespread effects of their spending. Through crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter, they’re able to fund projects they believe in and watch those projects take shape. And the unprecedented transparency between many companies and consumers via impact reports and some certifications makes purchasing products thoughtfully simpler than in the past.

Conscientious business leaders are taking a stand against unfair employee compensation, increasing internal engagement and helping uplift notoriously underpaid and overworked populations.

Impact investing, the segment of investing dedicated to benefiting society and conscientious companies, is growing and becoming accessible to the masses. Large companies are investing in innovative organizations and programs with the intention of transforming the future. While high-quality investing firms such as Natural Investments LLC appeal to investors with deep pocketbooks, others, such as Aspiration, are appealing to individual investors who are younger and more cautious. With the right information, investors of all sizes have the ability to understand where their dollars are being spent and how.

If it’s true that “money makes the world go ’round,” it’s heartening to see spending and investing trending toward the betterment of society. And more consumers and business leaders are recognizing the value of corporate social responsibility; learn more about its advantages in our free report.
