The Bundesinitiative Impact Investing (federal impact investing initiative) aims to build a strong impact investing ecosystem in Germany to create the conditions for private capitals to meet social and environmental challenges. The National Advisory Board explores the role impact investment can have in the context of Germany’s social economy, as well as keeping an eye on the scale of impact investments in and from Germany.
The NAB’s objectives are:
- Increasing impact investing as an investment approach and raising awareness of the social impact of capital.
- Supporting the cooperation of different actors in the impact investing landscape
- Promoting a favourable political and legal framework for impact investing
- Supporting the (further) development and dissemination of uniform impact measurement methodologies and standards
