At Twenty Over Ten we have the privilege of working with many clients that serve really specific niche audiences, which we love! From professional athletes to doctors and physicians, women and others – the opportunities are endless! However today we’re going to cover one niche in particular: ESG (environmental, social and governance) and socially responsible investing.
What is esg/socially responsible investing?
First things first, let’s define what this niche actually is.
Environmental: How a company performs as a steward of nature
Social: How a company manages relationships with employees, suppliers, communities, etc.
Governance: How the company’s leadership is run (i.e. audits, internal controls, shareholder rights, etc.)
The above are all considered criteria in ESG investing aka socially responsible investing. Those who choose to invest in companies that fit the criteria are typically very mindful of environmental impacts and the 🌏 around them. According to Investopedia, the amount of younger investors seeking investment options from their advisors that not only grow their assets but also help the society at large are growing rapidly.
As an investment choice that’s growing in popularity, you can see now why it’s so important to have a niche-specific website that speaks directly to such a targeted audience. So we’re here today to share with you four ESG/SRI websites that are completely crushing their digital presences.

When it comes to their investment philosophy and helping their clients, they believe that it is the best way to see long-term results when it comes to long-term profitability.
Their motto of the “3 P’s,” which stand for Planet, People and Profit is the foundation for what IMPACTfolio believes in. When they include these 3 pillars of their company, they believe a positive impact comes from it.
Aside from getting the chance to just work with an awesome client, we love that they take environmental concerns into account. Not only that, but they strive to work with companies that utilize renewable energy themselves, so not only do they practice it, but they seek out like-minded companies.

With these sound ideas, IMPACTfolio was a pleasure to work with, and we can’t wait to see how they excel!
