NEWS & PRESSImpact Frontiers publishes Impact Performance Reporting Norms Version 1

April 14, 2024

Impact Frontiers, a learning and market-building collaboration for investors seeking to manage their social and environmental impacts, today announced the launch of the Impact Performance Reporting Norms Version 1. The document synthesizes emerging consensus on the content that private market asset managers should include in their impact performance reports to asset owners and allocators to make them more decision-useful.

The publication is the culmination of an 18-month public consultation facilitated by Impact Frontiers and supported by The Rockefeller Foundation. More than 350 impact fund managers, capital providers, and third-party groups such as independent reviewers and civil society organizations provided feedback through comment letters and eight interactive webinars and in-person workshops held in New York City, Tokyo, London, and Rio De Janeiro.

Mike McCreless, Executive Director of Impact Frontiers, commented, “The Impact Performance Reporting Norms aim to change the ‘rules of the game’ and elicit greater clarity and integrity in reporting by fund managers and greater incorporation of impact into decision-making by asset owners and allocators. This will result in capital being channeled more efficiently and effectively to achieve integrated financial, social, and environmental goals.”

With the publication of the Reporting Norms, Impact Frontiers is planning to host webinars to engage the broader impact investing community. Additionally, an implementation phase will span mid-2024 to mid-2026 to support practitioners in piloting the Reporting Norms.

Practitioners are invited to provide feedback on Version 1 of the Impact Performance Reporting Norms or on the planned implementation phase by contributing to the Impact Frontiers online discussion board or e-mailing responses directly to

In-person events in New York City (top), London (bottom right), Tokyo (bottom left) and Rio De Janeiro (not pictured) engaged investors in co-designing the future of impact performance reporting and brainstorming solutions to implementation.
