We are thrilled to announce today a strategic partnership between the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSG) and the Y3i Group (YPO Impact Investing Initiative).

The YPO Y3i Group and GSG have joined forces to advance impact together, united by a common goal of promoting impact investment through education and advocacy. Together, we’ll leverage our collective resources, tools, and knowledge to host learning events and on-the-ground activities globally.

This partnership between GSG and YPO Y3i aims to advance impact investing for the betterment of people and the planet. It opens doors for joint education, research, and advocacy initiatives, granting YPO members access to GSG learning and convening events.

GSG, active in over 50 countries, works with a growing network of national partners to advance impact investing and develop impact economies. Through its work with governments and regulators it is progressing the transformation of global financial systems, so that every investment decision takes into account impact, as well as risk and return.
