Impact transparency is crucial for our shared future

We are facing an ever more urgent climate crisis with all its massive harms to nature, people and their livelihoods. Impact transparency is a key part of the solution to this crisis. Global harmonised standards and regulatory reporting will pave the way for the public to have trust in the impact statements provided by investors and companies. And impact valuation will show where our impact efforts can be deployed best, for the benefit of all people and our shared planet. 

Building on demand for short, sharp and influential events, the GSG is proud to present THREE ONLINE EVENTS across the year. They will explore key developments in the impact sector that provide impact transparency and help mobilise capital at scale in order to transition to a net-zero economy that leaves no one behind.

Last year the GSG played an instrumental role in coordinating the work of the Impact Taskforce (ITF), established under the 2021 UK Presidency of the G7 and in collaboration with the Impact Investing Institute, which made powerful recommendations in these areas. We are delighted to share the latest developments with you and to explore how we can bring the recommendations to life, through collaboration and action. 

 

Part 1, 15 June: Financing a Better World Through Impact Transparency

The first part of the series will focus on how to achieve impact transparency, discussing the role of regulators, ongoing developments on impact valuation and current efforts to implement this agenda globally, with contributions from impact leaders, practitioners and NAB voices from around the world.

Part 2, 22 September: Boosting Capital Flows in Emerging Markets

In the second part of the Series, we explore the barriers to investment in the SDGs and provide concrete solutions, presented by asset owners, asset managers and other leaders already implementing them.

We demonstrate that it is possible to scale up investments in emerging markets using existing instruments and tools across asset classes, often combined through blended finance mixed with guarantees and insurance products that have already proven effective in achieving expected levels of return.

Part 3: 22 November: New Frontiers of  The Impact Revolution, Townhall Meeting led by Sir Ronald Cohen

In the final part of the series on 22 November, Sir Ronald Cohen will lead a townhall meeting where we discuss boosting impact capital flows and debate how best to bring about full impact transparency for investors and businesses. We will look back at the progress made in implementing the G7 Impact Taskforce's recommendations and the way forward in overcoming the challenges ahead.
