The GIIN as well as IRIS+ users frequently publish research and reports that include IRIS-aligned data and are available for use by the broader impact investing community. This section includes both qualitative and quantitative data captured in surveys, performance studies, data briefs, and impact reports.

Research & Data

GIIN-authored research and data on market activities and trends, financial and impact performance, impact measurement & management practice, and more. Publications are intended to help advance understanding and implementation of impact measurement & management practice.

Contributing Data

Investors and enterprises have contributed impact data to the growing evidence base for the last decade. Forthcoming: Impact performance analyses on Financial Inclusion and Agriculture will be published in late 2020.

Impact Reports

​Impact reports listed either cite IRIS metrics or are IRIS+ metrics aligned. Each report provides an overview of the performance expectations, metrics tracked, and select impact results of the reporter.
