The State of Impact Measurement and Management Practice
This report, The State of Impact Measurement and Management Practice, presents findings from the GIIN’s first comprehensive survey of the state of impact measurement and management (IMM) in the impact investing industry.
A hallmark of impact investing is the commitment to measure – and increasingly to manage – impact. Impact management is the process by which impact investors can understand the effects of their investments on people and the planet, and set goals to adapt processes and improve outcomes. Over the years, the impact investing industry has dedicated increasing resources to IMM, deepening the sophistication of practice as the industry has developed.
The State of Impact Measurement and Management Practice captures data from 169 impact investing organizations to provide valuable insights into why impact investors measure and manage their social and environmental impact, how they do so, and challenges that remain. By providing critical data and transparency regarding IMM practice, this report enables investors to better understand this core element of impact investing.
