BII awarded top marks for alignment with the Operating Principles for Impact Management

Today we’re pleased to publish our approach to aligning with the Operating Principles for Impact Management (the Impact Principles), the impact investment industry standard for good impact management.

This year we have also had our alignment independently verified by BlueMark, a leading impact verification company. BlueMark assessed our approach as ‘advanced’ for all eight  of the Impact Principles. ‘Advanced’ is the highest possible alignment and underlines our continued position as a market leader in impact management.

We’re a founding signatory to the Impact Principles, which were launched as a framework for investors for the design and implementation of their impact management systems, ensuring that impact considerations are integrated throughout the investment lifecycle.

Since 2020, we have disclosed our alignment with the Impact Principles on our website on an annual basis.

We have also sought external assurance of our Impact Score, our tool to help us better manage our strategic impact on a portfolio basis. The conclusions of assurance provider EY on our Impact Score results for commitments we made in 2023 can be found on our website here.

We’re pleased to renew our commitment to the Impact Principles again this year. You can read the full disclosure statement here, and read BlueMark’s independent assessment here.
