What are the fundamentals of an Impact Investing Market Maturity Index (IIMX)?, Wednesday 6 July 2022, 1pm BST

While impact investing is experiencing fast and steady growth, providing an estimate of the maturity of a given impact investing ecosystem is crucial to inform market governance, inform policy marking and advocacy efforts, and act as a reference for investors willing to step into the impact economy.

To this end, the European Commission’s Joint Research Center (JRC), in partnership with Evolutiq impact, has been working on an Impact Investment Maturity Index (IIMX).

To learn more, join us on July 6th at 1pm BST.

How to (& how not to!) build a successful deal-matching platform: Lessons from Impact Agora?, Thursday 23 June 2022, 1pm BST

Connecting the demand and the supply side is critical to grow any NAB’s impact investing market. Good opportunities struggle to find capital at the same time investors need a pipeline of high-quality investable projects.

Increasingly, NABs have recognised the potential to establish their own deal matching platform. However, setting up the technology and running the community presents many challenges.

Impact Agora has been on that journey over the last two years and could prove a useful platform to help NAB facilitate connections and capital flows within and beyond their communities.

To learn more, join us on June 23rd at 1pm BST.

The Task Force on Inequality-related Financial Disclosures (TIFD): a new inequality measurement framework, Wednesday 8 June 2022, 2pm BST

Consensus is building among investors that the “S” in ESG is not well understood. Meanwhile, inequality is growing, and stakeholders globally are recognising both its negative impacts on humanity, as well as its threat as a systemic risk to markets.

The Task Force on Inequality-related Financial Disclosures (TIFD) is launching to develop a systemic risk management framework that can reduce inequality created by the private sector.

A collaboration among a broad range of stakeholders, TIFD will provide guidance, thresholds, targets, and metrics for companies and investors to measure and manage their impacts on inequality, as well as inequality’s impacts on company and investor performance.

Join us for an interactive discussion that will help you understand:

  • TIFD’s vision and objectives and how it relates to existing efforts
  • Its relevance to NABs’ work
  • How NABs can get involved

NAB Dialogue: Realizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – Implementing the SDG Impact Standards, Wednesday 16 March 2022, 11am GMT

Led by Social Value International (SVIs) Director of Impact, this dialogue will outline the training provided by SVI in partnership with SDG Impact and the exclusive opportunity to become an Accredited Trainer recognized by SVI and the UNDP for the rollout of the SDG Standards.  

You will also hear from the lead of Social Value Arabia who has recently successfully completed the process in partnership with UNDP Jordan and delivered training to the Amman Stock Exchange and the leading corporates in the country.  

Join us for a highly interactive session and learn about the opportunities for you and your network to play a leading role in the implementation of the SDG Impact Standards. 

The SDG Impact Standards provide a best practice guide and self-assessment tool when it comes to SDG reporting and over the last 12 months there has been a huge increase in demand for knowledge on how organizations can use them to align their internal processes, practices and decision making. In response to this demand, SDG Impact, a unit of the UNDP, and Social Value International have developed an in-depth training course and are now looking to train experienced sustainability or social impact professionals to deliver this training to enterprises around the world.

NAB Dialogue: Moving faith-based investors into impact, Wednesday 2 March 2022, 1pm GMT

Faith-based values have been the cornerstone of our society. However, there is a new and unexpected role for Faith-based organizations (FBOs) as large asset owners to shift (part of) their investments into a responsible portfolio with a net positive social and environmental impact. In order to do that we will need to engage, support and educate them, as well as their fiduciary intermediaries. The Amsterdam based FIIND Impact Foundation has published grant funded research into the journey of Faith-Based investors into impact. Join this NAB Dialogue to discover how to support FBOs to invest into impact investing (e.g. align faith values with impact investing themes).

The Faith Impact Project is a grant funded project of the FIIND Impact Foundation coordinated by the GSG’s Dutch National Advisory Board.

Impact clarity and the G7 Impact Task Force, Wednesday 26 January, 1 PM GMT

Where does ESG end and impact investing begin? Is there a difference between impact investing and investing with impact tools?

This session explores the outputs of the G7 Impact Task Force, particularly on creating greater impact clarity. From our working group on impact narrative, this lack of clarity was identified as a key barrier for impact investing to become mainstream. We’ll also examine our movement’s future trajectory, towards impact economies, and discuss how to get there.

Speakers: Cliff Prior, Daniel Rostrup
