There’s investing in a company to get a profit, and then there’s investing in a company to make an impact – but Martin Whittaker, CEO of the nonprofit Just Capital, says it’s possible to put your money in companies that do both.

That’s the idea behind Just Capital’s rankings of companies that are “ethical, honest, and fair,” Whittaker said in a presentation Tuesday at Business Insider’s IGNITION 2018 conference. Using this information, Whittaker said, investors can fund companies that prioritise issues that ” Americans care about most,” including income inequality, job creation, environmental impact, community work, and treatment of workers and customers.

“Businesses are becoming essentially social organising forces,” Whittaker said on stage Tuesday. “We think there’s a movement happening here.”
