The global influence of the GSG is built on a unique and growing group of National Advisory Boards, currently made up of 37 National and Regional Advisory Boards, representing 42 countries. A further 34 NABs are under development, many in lower and lower-middle-income countries.



Results driven co-operation for societal well-being

The Finnish National Impact Investing Advisory Board represents all of the central actors for impact investing. The mission of the National Advisory Board is to promote the construction of the impact investing ecosystem in Finland. Its purpose is to provide support to all three ‘cornerstones’: the public sector, service providers and investors. A co-ordinating operator such as Sitra will be needed in the future as well with the purpose to convene various actors and to support operational practices.
