The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to increasing the scale and effectiveness of impact investing. Impact investments are investments made into companies, organizations, and funds with the intention to generate social and environmental impact alongside a financial return. Impact investments can be made in both emerging and developed markets, and target a range of returns from below market to market rate, depending upon the circumstances. The GIIN addresses systemic barriers to effective impact investing by building critical infrastructure and developing activities, education, and research that attract more investment capital to poverty alleviation and environmental solutions.

ImpactBase is one of the GIIN’s core program areas and provides critical market infrastructure for scaling impact investing. ImpactBase (www.impactbase.org) is the online global directory of impact investing funds and products created to reduce search costs and bring order to the fragmented impact investing marketplace.
