Impact Principles 4th Anniversary Event

On April 12th, 2023, Signatories gathered both in person and virtually to recognize the 4th anniversary of the Impact Principles. Leaders in the industry shared their insights on the market, what is needed to continue the growth of impact investing and the development of best practices. In just 4 years, we have seen the Signatory base nearly triple in size, creating a diverse global community of impact investors committed to this standard for impact investing.

A special thank you to the IFC - International Finance Corporation and Susan Lund for hosting the event, Makhtar Diop of IFC and Afsaneh Beschloss of RockCreek for opening with the fireside chat and the dynamic panel discussion moderated by Amit Bouri of The Global Impat Investing Network with Maria Teresa Zappia of BlueOrchard Finance, Maria Hakansson of Swedfund International, Colin Buckley of British International Investment and Monica Brand Engel of Quona Capital.

The Signatory workshop that followed had discussions on strategic priorities for the Impact Principles, best practices in impact reporting led by Kristin Sadler of Quona Capital and Dannet Liv of Incofin Investment Management, and the GIIN’s performance benchmarking tool, presented by Sophia Sunderji and Benjamin Ringel, with insights from Sarah Hessel of Finance in Motion. And thank you to the 173 Signatories and your commitment to the Impact Principles and growing this market with integrity.
