The Impact Investing Institute’s mission is to accelerate the growth and improve the effectiveness of the impact investing market, so that more capital contributes to achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the well-being of people and the planet. The Institute’s three main objectives are mobilising big pools of capital, such as pension funds, to invest with impact, making capital more accountable and effective, and empowering people to save and invest in line with their values by addressing barriers that prevent them from investing with impact. We aim to deliver change by educating and raising awareness through communications, events, and engagement programmes, by providing useful tools and information on impact investing and by advocating for regulation and policies that support impact investing.
The UK National Advisory Board, Practitioners’ Council and collaborators are launching “The Rise of Impact: Five Steps Towards an Inclusive and Sustainable Economy” on 16 October. The report explores opportunities and imperatives for businesses, investors and policy makers to respond to changing social attitudes that have the potential to unlock billions of pounds to address some of the UK’s most pressing societal challenges.
