The third edition of the Impact Finance Barometer was launched at the 3Zero World Forum on September 5, 2023.
“Our new estimate of a global impact investing market larger than one trillion dollars represents a significant psychological milestone for the industry, as it matures and grows in sophistication,” said GIIN CEO Amit Bouri.
“While this figure serves as a very positive sign for the industry, it is also a call for further action. Vast allocations of capital and an intentional focus towards generating positive impact are required right now if we are to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 and to reach net zero emissions by 2050.”
Since 2021, the Impact Finance Barometer has presented key figures and global trends in financial inclusion and impact investing, a sector that has enjoyed strong, sustained momentum since its emergence in the early 2000s. Indeed, for the first time since GIIN began estimating the size of the global impact investment market, it has passed the symbolic $1,000 billion mark, reaching $1,164 billion by 2022.
What motivates the sector today? What levers can be activated to facilitate exchanges between impact finance players? How can we ensure its ethics and transparency? How can we ensure that financial flows are properly channeled to players in the field?
By inviting the structures of our ecosystem to share their expertise on the subject of impact, this publication aims to make its contribution to the debate. The Barometer offers a panoramic view of the different forms that impact finance can take, highlights its real operating capacities on a global scale through concrete examples, and highlights responses to the issues of inclusion and financing social and environmental transitions.
