As of December 2020, PG Impact Investments is a proud signatory of the Operating Principles for Impact Management (the “Impact Principles”). Launched in 2019, the framework was developed by the International Finance Cooperation (IFC) in collaboration with key stakeholders from the impact investment community to establish a set of best practices for impact management. Signatories to the Impact Principles are required to ensure a purposeful integration of these best practices throughout the manager’s full investment cycle.

In recent years, the field of impact investment has continued to attract new investors who seek to pursue a variety of social and environmental goals while achieving financial returns.

As more capital is being deployed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we believe that maintaining high standards of impact management benefits the industry at large. We therefore welcome the establishment of the Impact Principles, which foster increased accountability among veteran impact managers and newcomers alike.

PG Impact Investments has always defined clear impact objectives and applied a comprehensive impact

assessment process across the portfolio. Nevertheless, we

were pleased to work with BlueMark on an independent verification of our alignment to the Impact Principles, and believe that adhering to these common standards is a great step forward in enhancing transparency and knowledge-sharing across the impact industry.
