To realise the full potential of private capital for public good, we recognise the criticality of being transparent, thoughtful, and accountable to foster the trust and confidence the impact investing sector needs in order to expand.
We have chosen to align our practices with the Operating Principles for Impact Management (Impact Principles), and also seek an independent verification of this alignment from BlueMark, the global leader in impact verification.
The Operating Principles for Impact Management (Impact Principles) is a framework that guides impact managers to align with best practice systems and processes for impact management and measurement. To date, Impact Principles has 177 signatories managing over US$500bn in assets. We are one of the first signatories in Australia.
As the global leader in impact verification, BlueMark plays an important role in promoting best practice in impact investing worldwide. BlueMark provides a range of impact verification services, one of which is verifying impact investing funds against Impact Principles. These principles established a common discipline and market consensus around key components of managing investments for impact.
