GIIN Roadmap Presents ‘Unashamedly Ambitious’ Vision For Impact Investing
By Wendy Williams
The Roadmap for the Future of Impact Investing: Reshaping Financial Markets, which was launched by the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) on Tuesday, presents “an unashamedly ambitious” vision for more inclusive and sustainable financial markets.
The framework, which was started to coincide with the 10 year anniversary of the coining of the term impact investing, assesses industry progress to date and outlines specific actions needed to exponentially enhance the scale and effectiveness of impact investing across the world.
GIIN CEO and co-founder Amit Bouri said the roadmap presented a collective plan to accelerate the development of the industry.
“Impact investing is laying the groundwork for a new model for financial markets – one in which the markets work for people and the planet, as well as investors,” Bouri said.
“In order to meet the urgent need presented by social and environmental challenges around the world, the global impact investing market needs to scale and develop at a much faster pace.
“We believe this roadmap can multiply the impact of this movement and shift expectations about the role capital plays in society.”
