In 2017, Dame Elizabeth Corley, Chair of the Impact Investing Institute, convened the first meeting of the Taskforce for Growing a Culture of Social Impact Investing in the UK. Since then, the impact investing market has developed significantly – but until now there has not been an estimate of the size of the UK market in its totality. Our report, “Estimating and describing the UK impact investing market”, published in partnership with EY and supported by the Department for Digital, Media, Culture and Sport and Big Society Capital, sets out to change this.

In November 2021, the FCA launched a discussion paper “DP21/4: Sustainability Disclosure Requirements (SDR) and investment labels” and sought responses both to the paper itself and the questions laid out in its annex. In January 2022, the Impact Investing Institute hosted a roundtable with the FCA to explore the proposals laid out by the discussion paper. The roundtable focused on impact labelling, the tiered structure approach, and the transition category.

In September 2021, the Institute submitted its response to the Financial Conduct Authority’s consultation papers CP21/17 and CP21/18 on enhancing climate-related disclosures. The Institute strongly welcomes these timely consultations and the FCA’s commitment to widening the applicability of its requirement to make climate-related disclosures.

In December 2020, the Institute submitted its response to the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) Foundation’s Consultation Paper on Sustainability Reporting. The Institute warmly welcomes the proposal of the IFRS Foundation and commends the Foundation for taking this significant first step. We believe the Foundation is well-placed to set sustainability reporting standards which are relevant to enterprise value because of its strong experience in setting international accounting standards.
