A recent article in the Guardian magazine declared that soon 'all investing will be impact investing'. What is impact investing? Impact investing is where the investor considers not only the financial return of the business, but also the social and environmental factors or impacts of any investment.
An Australian company is right at the core of impact and ESG (environmental, social and governance) business and responsibility. Wide Open Agriculture (ASX: WOA) and (FWB: 2WO) is helping to rebuilt the ravaged wheatbelt of Western Australia through regenerative and holistic farming practices. The company recently shipped $40,000 in June 2019 of regeneratively farmed beef and lamb. WOA is bringing hope and inspiration back to the wheatbelt and is now looking to build on these foundations with collaborations with European partners and investors.
