Advisory Board

The Advisory Board provides the Secretariat with advice on the implementation and evolution of the Impact Principles. The Advisory Board's role is entirely advisory without oversight responsibilities or other authority.

Elections for the Advisory Board shall be held every two years.  A member may be reelected to serve for an additional consecutive two-year term. Advisory Board members would serve in their corporate capacity without any fiduciary or similar obligation to Signatories or the Secretariat.

The Advisory Board is chaired by a Convenor, who presides over the meetings of the Advisory Board.  The Convenor's role is solely administrative in nature.  IFC was the initial host of the Secretariat until November 2022, when the GIIN became the new host. As the host, the GIIN serves on the Advisory Board.

The Secretariat may permit one or more key industry organizations to sit in on Advisory Board meetings as observers.

The first Advisory Board was elected by the Signatories in June 2019.  The current Advisory Board members are listed below.
