The Impact Investing Podcast

Sep 16, 2015

Nancy Pfund is a legend and expert in Venture Capital, Renewable Energies and Impact Investing. She has been in the field for over 20 years and is widely cited in her writing and speaking about the importance in renewable energy.  Her fund, DBL Investors just finished closing a new $400 million fund - which is now the largest social impact fund ever raised.

DBL Investors assists its port­fo­lio com­pa­nies in achiev­ing a “dou­ble bot­tom line”: that is, strong long-​​term finan­cial suc­cess as well as pos­i­tive social, envi­ron­men­tal and eco­nomic impact in the local com­mu­nity. We have found that dou­ble bot­tom line prac­tices that com­pa­nies choose to adopt can be sig­nif­i­cantly ben­e­fi­cial to the fis­cal bot­tom line both via direct ben­e­fits of cost sav­ings and value cre­ation, and via indi­rect ben­e­fits of cre­at­ing good­will with their mar­ket, cus­tomers and com­mu­nity, and enhanc­ing employee morale and retention.
