Sustainable investing primarily means the ideology of
sustainable investing puts sustainability into the core in investment
decisions. Here, the sustainability related issues include e.g. climate change
and environmental destruction/protection matters. Sometimes companies are
forced to renew their operations and investments to more sustainable direction,
as they face legal requirements and have to do it just to stay in business. But
in reality, we do not achieve most environmentally friendly investments through
political and legal pressure. In generally, the concept of sustainable
investments has long been established in professional environments such as
insurance companies or institutional investors, but its overall picture is
still a bit vague. This vagueness is especially evident, when it comes to
private companies’ sustainable investments and there is lot of scope to do
further research within the matter. This particular research work provides an
opportunity to learn, investigate and analyze how private companies and
municipalities could aggregate value and exploit their business opportunities
when applying financially feasible sustainability practices. A systematic
review has been carried out in scientific literature, taking the Sustainable
Development Goals promoted by United Nations as the base definition of
sustainability. Along with governments and private sector investors, the
insights provided by this search may also be of interest to economists and
researchers for further research.
