Investing for positive impact goes beyond avoiding harm and mitigating risks, and is at the centre of a wider movement towards more responsible investing.
What is the Impact Investing Institute?
The Impact Investing Institute is an independent, non-profit organisation which aims to accelerate the growth and improve the effectiveness of the impact investing market. It will do this by raising awareness of, addressing barriers to and increasing confidence in investing with impact.
Our vision is for lives to improve, as more people choose to use their savings and investments to help solve social challenges, as well as seeking a financial return.
Our mission is to accelerate the growth and improve the effectiveness of the impact investing market, so that more capital contributes to achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
