Climate Change Mitigation Investments

Clean Energy | Solar Panels

Investees in this sample decreased their emissions by 6.4% per year, marking significant progress among a sample of impact investments. However, a gap remains to achieving the target -7.6% annual decrease in emissions required to limit warming to 1.5°C in alignment with IPCC recommendations, further underscoring the need for further progress among impact investors in avoiding climate catastrophe.  Investments focused on nature-based solutions sequestered 3.2 million metric tons of emissions on average each year, reflecting significant real-world impact through forestry and agriculture impact investments.


Quality jobs Investments

Skill-building trainings or mentorship opportunities at investee organizations have grown over time, with an 18% annual average increase in the number of full-time permanent staff receiving trainings; improvement in job skills is critical to improved career progression opportunities.  The gender wage equity ratio was 0.95 across the full sample, and 1.01 among the subset of investees with anti-discrimination and anti-harassment policies. Once adjusted for differences in work and job characteristics, the gender wage gap sits at 0.98. Companies receiving impact investment with anti-discrimination and anti-harassment policies in place outperform the global average, showing the potential impact of these policies.


Amit Bouri, Co-Founder and CEO of the GIIN (Global Impact Investing Network):

“If we are going to move investment capital at the scale needed for the environmental and social crises of our time, it is essential that we have a sophisticated understanding of impact performance. Aspirations and anecdotes alone are not going to be sufficient; we need markets to focus on real-world outcomes for people and planet.

The goal of this research is to enable investors to drive toward greater progress in tackling our climate crisis and addressing inequity. To achieve that progress, the GIIN continues to push for more rigorous industry-wide analytics and data-sharing to provide investors with the tools necessary to measure, manage, and optimize impact. Through this work, and the IRIS+ system, our aim is to build a world where impact becomes a part of all investing.”
