In order to meet the SDGs and deliver the Just Transition to Net Zero, there is an urgent need to promote the creation of sustainable, impact-driven economies and societies worldwide. The Taskforce was established to identify the most critical actions for the impact investing ecosystem to contribute to positive change.
Scope of Work
The Taskforce has developed a series of technical documents and recommendations for G7 Governments (and for the financial sector, for standard-setters and other stakeholders) to support further growth and development of the impact investing sector. The Taskforce was an industry-led initiative (with the support of FCDO), co-ordinated and facilitated by the GSG. It will gather leading impact investors and stakeholders to work on two complementary workstreams, focusing on how impact transparency, integrity, and trust can be delivered, inter alia, through the development of standardised non-financial corporate reporting and disclosure, and on promoting specific financial vehicles able to harness private capital at scale for positive social and developmental outcomes.
