The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing the scale and effectiveness of impact investing. It builds infrastructure and supports activities, education, and research that help accelerate the development of a coherent impact investing industry.
In 2016, the GIIN launched its campaign urging investors around the world to “channel their capital to impact investing” by aligning their investments with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
From the GIIN: “As part of this campaign, the GIIN profiled a variety of impact investors to better understand how they are approaching the SDGs and how this growing community can collectively drive results. Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals: The Role of Impact Investing is a collection of profiles that demonstrate how impact investors have begun to utilize the SDG framework to address a variety of global issues such as access to clean water, improving health and well-being, climate change mitigation, and more.”
