PhiTrust believes that IRIS metrics are a great starting point for discussions with our porfolio companies regarding their current and expected future social outputs. The increasing adoption of the IRIS metrics is important, as it enables PhiTrust to gain an understaning of the criteria used by other social impact investors to measure the outputs stemming from their portfolio companies.
Other Impact Measurement Tools
We have developed internal impact measurement tools, inspired by IRIS, SROI and other existing methodologies, as well as our own experiences and ongoing dialogue with our portfolio companies. In addition to measuring output, we aim to, wherever possible, assess the real impact stemming from our portfolio companies.
