How do you measure impact for an investor?
Investment impact is measured using the Global Impact Investing Ratings System (GIIRS).
This system examines the social and environmental impact and practices (but not the financial performance) of companies and funds using a rating system analogous to Morningstar’s investment rankings or Standard & Poors’s credit risk ratings.
GIIRS is based on the Impact Reporting and Investment Standards (IRIS) metrics, a set of standardized measures for describing social, environmental, and financial performance.
