Proposed Definitions, Strategies, Disclosures and Templates for Investor Contribution
Impact Frontiers and The Predistribution Initiative (PDI), with the support of Omidyar Network, jointly facilitated an industry consensus-building effort to develop resources that can support investors in measuring, managing, and reporting their positive and negative contributions to impact and systematic risk. Through this “Investor Contribution 2.0” (IC 2.0) project, we invited input and feedback via public consultation from February 21 through May 30, 2023. The public consultation process is now complete, and we will publish the final products as a public resource in summer 2023.
In the public consultation phase of the project, focused on private capital asset classes, we invited feedback on the proposed definitions and strategies for investor contribution described in the Investor Contribution Definitions & Strategies white paper, and on three related templates created to support investors:
In addition to specific consultation questions throughout the documents, our overarching consultation questions were:
- Would you be willing to adopt and endorse the terms, definitions, and guidelines below as an emerging industry consensus? If not, what are the ‘must-haves’ that would need to change?
- Would you be willing to pilot the templates provided (as appropriate) and provide feedback to the project team, so that we can continue to improve them as a public good for investors? What would your feedback be?
