Celebrating Five Years of the Impact Principles

5th Anniversary Graphic

We are proud to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Operating Principles for Impact Management!

Since being launched in 2019 with 58 founding Signatories, the Impact Principles have become the global standard for integrating impact throughout the investment lifecycle, elevating transparency and rigor in impact management practice and safeguarding against impact washing as the impact investing market mainstreams. The number of Signatories has tripled since the launch, now including 183 organizations from 40 countries managing over $528 billion USD in impact assets, nearly half of the estimated global impact investing market. Looking to the future, we are doubling down on the Impact Principles’ role in ensuring integrity and aiming to grow their influence across the capital value chain in the rapidly evolving impact market. 

The Impact Principles represent a truly collective effort to advance the state of impact management practice and enable impact investing market scaling with integrity. We are deeply grateful for the support of our Signatories and Advisory Board, as well as our host, The Global Impact Investing Network, and our original host, IFC. We look forward to celebrating this achievement and looking to the future of the Impact Principles with our Signatory community and invited guests at our 5th Anniversary Celebration in London on May 15th.
