The governance structure of the Impact Principles is comprised of a Secretariat and Advisory Board. The Secretariat was created to oversee, administer, and support the continued promotion and adoption of the Principles. The role of the Advisory Board is to advise the Secretariat on the implementation and evolution of the Impact Principles.
The first Advisory Board was elected by the Signatories in June 2019, each member serving a two-year term. The Advisory Board is chaired by a Convenor, who presides over meetings of the Advisory Board. IFC, as initial host of the Secretariat, is the initial Convenor.
The Governing Provisions provide for the Secretariat to permit one or more key industry organizations to sit in on Advisory Board meetings as observers.
