Around the world, people are beginning to shift their attitudes about the role capital should play in our society?—?from building stronger communities locally to mitigating climate change globally.
The impact investing market is expanding, and the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) is committed to helping fuel its growth while creating the infrastructure to ensure the market scales with integrity.
This week, the GIIN has launched two initiatives: a study to capture the current size of the impact investing market and a set of Core Characteristics to provide baseline expectations of impact investing. Check them out!
Core Characteristics to Safeguard the Integrity of Impact Investing
The Core Characteristics of Impact Investing define the growing approach of impact investing and offer greater clarity on what constitutes credible impact investing practice. The four fundamental tenets represent the baseline expectations for investors adopting an impact investing approach.
