Impact Washing

Impact Washing

Also sometimes referred to as “Green Washing,” Impact washing is when the social and/or environmental benefits or “impacts” of an investment product or service are exaggerated or made up in order to sell more of it. Investment managers might be tempted to “impact wash” or “green wash” their funds or services because they can use the impact or green label to charge higher management fees.

Impact washing is possible because most people don’t know what sustainable investing is or how it differs from impact investing. Sustainable investing is also based on things that aren’t always objective and can be open to interpretation or hard to measure.

This is my 15th year of growing my MOustache (aka “MO) with MOvember. I grow my MO to honor my father-in-law, who passed away from prostate cancer + to raise awareness and funds + to literally and figuratively change the face of men’s health. Movember is a fun approach to serious issues (testicular cancer for younger men + prostate cancer for older men + mental health for all of us), so I hope when you see our MOs that you will check yourself + remember to schedule your annual physicals + reach out if you need a friend.   #movember #menshealth #SouthBayMoBros
