Are Two Bottom Lines Better Than One?

Hosted by Ashley Milne-Tyte

Investing for Profit and Purpose

For some companies, doing good is as much a part of the corporate ethos as doing well. But does prioritizing social and environmental impact along with profit actually work?

Finding the rare unicorn startup that both disrupts an industry and changes the world for the better has been the mission for Nancy Pfund of DBL Ventures. These double bottom line businesses are changing the way many are thinking about sustainability. In this episode of the podcast we learn what Nancy values in these companies, visit a transformative soap factory in a struggling Chicago community, and hear from Hilary Irby, Morgan Stanley’s co-head of Global Sustainable Finance, about how this approach works and what potential investors should keep in mind.
