Impact investments are investments made with the intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return.
Our response to coronavirus
Like many other organisations, we are responding to the coronavirus pandemic and its devastating human and economic costs on communities around the world.
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 and environmental 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.
