By Hazel Bradford

Impact investors are increasingly using impact measurement and management tools in their investment processes, according to a report issued Monday by the Global Impact Investing Network.

The GIIN report, Impact Measurement and Management Practice, is based on data from 308 impact investors. It found that 77% of them align their impact priorities with global development agendas, such as the Paris climate accords and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Impact investors use a variety of impact accountability mechanisms, with 48% undergoing audits on impact practice or performance.
