How does the GIIN work with investors to accelerate the scale and effectiveness of impact investing?
By convening impact investors to facilitate knowledge exchange, highlighting innovative investment approaches, building the evidence base for the industry, and producing valuable tools and resources, the GIIN seeks to accelerate the industry's development through focused leadership and collective action.
Ultimately, the GIIN focuses on reducing barriers to impact investment so more investors can allocate capital to fund solutions to the world's most intractable challenges. We do this by building critical infrastructure and developing activities, education, and research that help accelerate the development of a coherent impact investing industry.
The GIIN’s work currently embraces the following focus areas to provide investors with:
- Industry networks and events:
- Tools & Resources for Impact Measurement & Management (IMM):
- Transparency into the landscape of impact investing funds:
- Training programs for impact investors and fund managers:
- Industry research, market data, and publications:
- Market leadership initiatives:
