Impact transparency is crucial for our shared future

We are facing an ever more urgent climate crisis with all its massive harms to nature, people and their livelihoods. Impact transparency is a key part of the solution to this crisis. Global harmonised standards and regulatory reporting will pave the way for the public to have trust in the impact statements provided by investors and companies. And impact valuation will show where our impact efforts can be deployed best, for the benefit of all people and our shared planet.

Building on demand for short, sharp and influential events, the GSG is proud to present THREE ONLINE EVENTS across the year. They will explore key developments in the impact sector that deliver impact transparency and help mobilise capital at scale in order to transition to a net-zero economy that leaves no one behind.

Last year the GSG played an instrumental role in coordinating the work of the Impact Taskforce (ITF), established under the 2021 UK Presidency of the G7 and in collaboration with the Impact Investing Institute, which made powerful recommendations in these areas. We are delighted to share the latest developments with you and to explore how we can bring the recommendations to life, through collaboration and action. Join us for the GSG Impact Summit Series 2022!

Fees

Why do you charge for this event?

Answer: We are sensitive to budget constraints in the current climate, however we do incur costs to stage the Series, so we are charging a minimal price for access.

Is there a discount for bulk ticket purchases?

Answer: If you wish to purchase more than 20 tickets together, please contact us.

What is the cancellation policy?
