IRIS+ for Decision-Making

Developed in partnership with Jane Reisman and Uma Sekar, May 2019

Data-driven decision-making has become a well-established business practice. Yet, social and environmental effects are not routinely integrated into decision-making. Tracking and mining impact data throughout the investment lifecycle is an important standard for both enterprises and investors.

The "How to use IRIS+ for decision-making" document provides practical guidance on how to use IRIS+ Core Metrics Sets to inform decision-making to enhance impact throughout the investment lifecycle. It also includes a concrete illustration of the practical use of IRIS+ Core Metrics Sets based on real data that focuses on portfolio construction and post-investment management from an asset manager’s perspective.

This document belongs to the How-To guidance series of IRIS+ which provide examples of how to use IRIS+ in practice.
