One of the industry’s most impressive areas of progress and achievement rarely makes headlines, even though it is fundamental to impact investing, is impact measurement and management.
To better understand the impact measurement and management (IMM) approach of impact investors, for the first time ever we have a comprehensive data set on current practice.
Impact investors should explore the following opportunities to strengthen their practice and further deepen their impact:
- Investors should recognize that every investment creates multifaceted impact.
- Impact investors can enhance the rigor of their impact strategies by setting targets and embedding them into business practices
- By making more of their impact data available to key stakeholders and the broader industry, investors can strengthen the evidence base for understanding the impact results of impact investments, share lessons with others, and accelerate the field’s influence over critical problems facing society and the environment.
Greater communication about impact performance will enable all impact investors and their investees to better understand, expand, and deepen their impact to more effectively overcome some of the world’s most intractable social and environmental challenges.
