Public Consultation on Proposed Definitions, Strategies, Disclosures and Templates for Investor Contribution

Impact Frontiers and The Predistribution Initiative (PDI), with the support of Omidyar Network, are jointly facilitating 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 are inviting input and feedback via public consultation from February 21 through April 30, 2023, and will publish the final products as a public resource in mid-2023.
