The Global Impact Investing Network  (GIIN) has launched IRIS+, a comprehensive system for impact investors to measure, manage and optimize their impact. 

IRIS+ reduces confusion, increases comparability, and makes it easier to communicate impact results.

“The challenges the world is facing are too urgent for impact capital to underperform,” said Amit Bouri, CEO of the GIIN.

“IRIS+ provides a way for investors to translate impact intentions into real impact results. This is a huge leap forward for the industry, and it will drive even greater impact performance,” he said.

With the industry’s rapid growth and increased calls for precise tools, investors are eager for streamlined practical guidance on how to measure and manage their impact.

IRIS+ gives investors an easy-to-use system, including sets of core metrics around certain key themes such as clean energy access, financial inclusion, health, and affordable housing.

Utilizing IRIS+, investors can identify evidence-based metrics that will be most relevant to their strategies and desired goals.

IRIS+ enables clear and comparable data, and takes the guesswork out of impact management.

“Those familiar with the IRIS catalogue of metrics will find IRIS+ more comprehensive and straightforward to use, with expanded coverage and functionality,” added Kelly McCarthy, Director of IRIS+ and Impact Measurement and Management.

“For those who are new to the platform, IRIS+ provides a reliable starting point to enter the impact measurement and management space,” she said.
