IRIS+ and Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSG)

Original alignment date: September 15, 2014

A paper that identifies seven best practice guidelines - including use of metrics - which impact investors can integrate into investment management at the portfolio level as well as into specific deals.

Written by the Working Group on Impact Measurement (IMWG) under the direction of the Social Impact Investment Taskforce. Provides guidelines for impact measurement to impact investors, as well as a vision for the evolution of impact measurement in the years ahead. The IMWG was comprised of 29 thought leaders in impact investing and measurement—including private investors, foundations, academics, nonprofits, and intermediaries—representing diverse sectors and geographies. It was co-chaired by the GIIN and New Philanthropy Capital (NPC). Visit Global Steering Group for Impact Investment.
