“When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.” George Washington Carver

What is Social Entrepreneurship?

Statement of Faith
You can find other “Market with Meaning” but you definitely want to see “Profit with Purpose”.

Version 2.2 of the Impact Reporting and Investment Standards (IRIS) Released

OPIC logoThis month, the GIIN released version 2.2 of the Impact Reporting and Investment Standards (IRIS), which incorporates minor enhancements to existing social and environmental metrics, modifications to glossary definitions, as well as several new indicators. The most significant changes are the addition of 17 new agricultural indicators as a result of the IRIS initiative’s partnership with the Finance Alliance for Sustainable Trade (FAST) to develop and pilot social, environmental, and financial performance indicators for investments in sustainable trade finance. Impact investors and investment recipients are encouraged to provide feedback on IRIS 2.2 on the IRIS website. In December, the IRIS initiative and FAST will be conducting a series of webinars to present the changes and to gain additional comments.
