Sustainable impact investing is one way for businesses to have financial gains and positively impact social and environmental issues at the same time.
John Treadgold is a sustainable investment expert and the Founder and host of the Good Future podcast. Good Future highlights business leaders in sustainable, ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance), and impact investing who are re-defining economics and building companies as a force for good.
John’s mission is to reboot finance and economics to serve people and the planet better. For him, this is something that, no matter how the economy ebbs and flows or how the challenges, pivots, and strategies of an organization change, their mission stays solid.
John is also a writer and an independent communication and strategy consultant who helps investors and businesses identify the emerging opportunities for sustainable investing.
In today’s episode, John shares how the entire field of ESG and sustainable finance are adapting and progressing even more resiliently in a sustainable future. He gives an update on his podcast, the Good Future podcast, and shares the impacts of the sustainable investment world. Cory and John also discuss how they navigated the COVID pandemic as entrepreneurs.

“I’ve sort of embraced being a generalist as a bit of a superpower in terms of being able to look at so many different areas of the world; take the macro view and the micro view and be able to process all of that in return. And I think that’s a value to my clients rather than being a sort of a drawback.” “…The external consultant comes in, and their role is to have a perception of the world and understand the market, but then also to ask lots of smart questions and get a feel for the organization and give them a perspective on themselves that they can’t do – you can’t read the label when you’re in the job.”— John Treadgold
