The Fund defines impact investments as investments that both deliver market-grade returns and generate meaningful and measurable impact on the Fund’s mission to advance social change that contributes to a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world. We gauge our progress [PDF] across a range of outcome measures, including the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) catalog of generally accepted impact performance metrics, IRIS+.
The Fund has set a target to allocate 20 percent of its portfolio to impact investments. From this pool, the Fund prioritizes investments that directly align with the Fund’s grantmaking programs, including investments in clean energy development.
