Impact investing aims not only to generate financial return; it also expressly seeks to create social return. Through our work, we want to help make sure that investment capital will be used even more deliberately as a lever for positive social change.
We raise the awareness of potential investors for the impact investing approach through workshops and publications, assist in implementing innovative financial instruments, and work towards improving the political and legal frameworks for impact investing.
Through collaborating with our Responsible Leaders as well as foundations, intermediaries, personal and institutional investor networks, development aid organizations, and government and public administration representatives, we help build a professional impact investing ecosystem, both nationally and internationally.
Our work in this key area so far includes the publication of a Guide to Impact Investing for German foundations in cooperation with the Association of German Foundations as well as collaborations with the international impact investing network TONIIC and the Center for Sustainable Finance and Private Wealth in Switzerland.
