According to the Impact investing Institute, Impact Investing is about taking into consideration and managing potential ESG risks and, critically, deciding to invest specifically “with the intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return”.
The Maturity Institute and its OMINDEX® diagnostic standard is therefore delighted to become a Supporter of the Impact Investing Principles for Pensions, which provide support to pension funds in adopting impact investing.
Stuart Woollard, Managing Partner at OMS LLP and co-founder of the Maturity Institute says:
“The Impact Investing Principles for Pensions provide a crucial foundation for re-defining investment and corporate success. Where financial return, environmental outcomes, and human value can be fully integrated within a mutually inclusive, stakeholder value system. The Principles are completely aligned with our own aims and objectives and we are excited that OMINDEX® can play its part to support them; to help demonstrate how true, total stakeholder value should be at the heart of organisational health. We hope our contribution will help to re-shape a financial services sector that authentically embeds Impact as a core, common purpose.”
The Maturity Institute is the sixth organisation demonstrating their endorsement of the principles, other Supporters being The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, Investment Consultants Sustainability Working Group, The Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSG), The Investor Forum and World Benchmarking Alliance.
