INTRODUCTION FOR IMPACT INVESTMENT

Impact Investment

Development Finance

Credibly report on climate and development impacts of investments

Impact investors and development financiers can use Gold Standard for the Global Goals to de-risk investments and credibly report on climate and sustainable development impacts from projects in their investment portfolios. 

De-risking for due diligence

Gold Standard for the Global Goals can be applied at a fund level, embedding requirements into a fund’s investment criteria and due diligence process. Requirements are robust but simple for early-stage assessment of risks and estimation of development outcomes.

Practical MRV for impact reporting

The standard also provides a pragmatic approach for monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) of project performance within an investment portfolio. This integrated approach streamlines the certification process and optimises costs at the portfolio level.

Value of Gold Standard certification

GREATER IMPACT

 

Rigorous safeguards, stakeholder engagement, and methodologies maximise the climate and SDG impacts of your projects. For companies purchasing environmental commodities like carbon credits or RECs, this translates to more value created.

SEAMLESS INTEGRATION WITH LEADING STANDARDS AND PROTOCOLS

Beyond aligning with the Sustainable Development Goals targets and indicators, Gold Standard for the Global Goals requirements and methodologies are designed to be compatible with leading reporting frameworks and protocols, like the IFC Operating Principles for Impact Management.
