IRIS Use Case Study Released by the KL Felicitas Foundation and the Global Impact Investing Network

Join the KL Felicitas Foundation & the IRIS team for a Webinar Next Week

Click Here to Download the Case Study

To provide a model of IRIS adoption by impact investors, the KL Felicitas (KLF) Foundation and the Global Impact Investing Network jointly released today a case study which explains KLF’s motivation for IRIS adoption and details the Foundation’s application of IRIS across its active investment portfolio. IRIS, the Impact Reporting and Investment Standards, is a common language for reporting the social, environmental, and financial performance of impact investments. Impact investments aim to address critical global challenges while generating financial returns for investors.

The KL Felicitas IRIS Case Study can be downloaded from both the IRIS website and the KLF Foundation website. We hope that this case study is a valuable resource for you and we encourage you to share it with your colleagues and stakeholders.

If you would like to learn more about IRIS and the Kleissners’ decision to use IRIS to track the performance of KLF’s portfolio, please join Sarah Gelfand, Director of IRIS at the Global Impact Investing Network, Charly and Lisa Kleissner, Co-Founders of KLF Foundation, and Will Morgan, Portfolio Manager of KLF Foundation, for a webinar next week:

  • Monday, April 25 at 12:00 PM Eastern Time
  • Tuesday, April 26 at 1:00 PM Eastern Time

The IRIS standards, which are developed by industry experts and are aligned with established standards where they exist, allow for greater transparency and comparability across impact investments. By using the IRIS standardized metrics to track and report social and environmental performance, impact investors like the KLF Foundation contribute to more coordinated and consistent performance reporting across the impact investing industry. IRIS data collection also enables data comparison that can support performance benchmarks and other aggregate analyses that are likely to attract more capital to businesses and projects providing global solutions. IRIS is an initiative of the Global Impact Investing Network, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to increasing the scale and effectiveness of impact investing.

The KL Felicitas Foundation was created in 2000 by Charly and Lisa Kleissner, who had successful careers in technology and architecture prior to pursing philanthropy full time. The mission of the KLF Foundation is to enable social entrepreneurs and enterprises worldwide to develop and grow sustainably, with an emphasis on rural communities and families. Impact investing is a key strategy employed by the KLF Foundation because it allows the Kleissners to direct not only their grant funding, but also the Foundation’s invested capital towards their goal.
