Metrics used in the GIIRS Rating to determine an overall rating of a fund’s social and environmental impact, irrespective of an organization’s geography.

Funds can be recognized for their performance by electing to become Global Impact Investment Rating System (GIIRS) rated.

The GIIRS rating system builds on the IRIS Catalog of Metrics in conjunction with additional criteria to come up with an overall fund score for a variety of business models in which the fund invests. The GIIRS rating varies based on the sector and market in which the fund operates.
