The CFC becomes a GIIN member
We are happy to announce that we are now a member of the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN)!
The GIIN is the global leading organization devoted to increasing the scale and effectiveness of impact investing – a sector which has experienced significant growth over the past years. According to the GIIN, the estimated market size of impact investing was USD 715 billion in 2020. This reflects the increasing consensus on the importance of investments with positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return. The impact investing industry therefore offers opportunities to address global pressing challenges, including sustainable agriculture and renewable energy, among others. As such, the GIIN convenes impact investors to facilitate knowledge exchange to accelerate the industry’s development through focused leadership and collective action. It also focuses on reducing barriers to impact investment so more investors can allocate capital to fund solutions to current global challenges.
Through this membership, the CFC will benefit from the network opportunities offered by the GIIN, connecting with peers in the impact investing sector to keep up with the latest industry standards. It is also a chance to learn and collaborate with them, ultimately leveraging the full potential of impact investing.
Looking ahead, we are excited to engage with this diverse global community of impact investors and to contribute to the growth of the industry!
