Earth Capital signs up to the IFC Operating Principles for Impact Management

Date published: Tuesday, 7 January 2020

Earth Capital is pleased to announce that it has signed up to the International Finance Corporation’s Operating Principles for Impact Management.

As pioneers in the field of Sustainable Finance, our focus on returns continues to be of utmost importance, however, we also realise that measuring our impact on society and the world at large creates the potential for a significant increase in value and thereby positively affecting those returns that we are seeking. 

In this vein, Earth Capital is pleased to announce that it has signed up to the International Finance Corporation’s Operating Principles for Impact Management. The International Finance Corporation is a subsidiary of the World Bank committed to ending extreme poverty by 2030 and boosting shared prosperity. 

The Operating Principles for Impact Management were developed by the IFC in consultation with a group of asset owners, managers and allocators, to support the development of the impact investing industry by establishing a common discipline around the management of investments for impact. 

The nine Principles demonstrate the core elements of a robust impact management system and create a transparency of the signatories’ alignment with them.  

Gordon Power, Chief Executive Officer, Earth Capital
