“The world is on the brink of a revolution in how we solve society’s toughest problems. The force driving this revolution is “impact investing”, which harnesses entrepreneurship, innovation, capital and markets to power social progress. This report, Impact Investing: The Invisible Heart of Markets, explores this revolution and provides a set of summary recommendations that can be implemented across G7 countries to encourage the development of measureable social and environmental impacts alongside financial returns.
The crash of 2008 highlighted the need for a renewed effort to ensure that finance helps build a healthy society rather than endanger it. This requires a paradigm shift in capital market thinking, from two-dimensions to three. By bringing a third dimension, impact, to the traditional capital market priorities of risk and return, impact investing has the potential to transform our ability to build a better society for all.”
