2021 Impact Report: Your Partner in Purpose
Together with our clients, we shattered investment and granting records to respond to the compounding crises of 2020. See our impact to date, how we are partnering with our impact investing ecosystem and working together to solve the world’s greatest challenges.
Investing in Today’s Most Urgent Challenges
portfolio companies and impact funds working towards climate solutions received an investment from ImpactAssets in 2020.
Our goal: reduce 51 billion annual tons of greenhouse gas emissions to net 0. Climate change has and will continue to negatively impact every part of our built and natural environments until we achieve this. We are working to close the estimated $1.6-3.8 trillion annual funding gap needed to scale high-potential climate solutions, increase resilience in our cities and frontline communities and support education and policy efforts needed to drive critical change. Our impact investment products and strategies are designed to address near-and long-term solutions that both mitigate the devastating effects of climate change and help communities adapt to the changes already underway.
Racial Equity Commitment
portfolio companies and impact funds addressing racial equity received an investment from ImpactAssets in 2020.
The gap in business ownership between Black and Latino households, relative to White households, accounts for 25% of the overall wealth gap between these groups. We are working to provide access to financing and remove barriers for those who are systematically left out of financial opportunity. Our impact investment products and strategies are designed to increase access to financing for BIPOC-owned businesses and support microfinance institutions that offer additional enabling services such as workforce development and upskilling programs, childcare, education and affordable housing.
Gender Equality Commitment
portfolio companies and impact funds supporting gender equality received an investment from ImpactAssets in 2020.
Women start 40% of businesses, yet receive just 3% of funding in the US. Globally, there is an estimated $1.7 trillion shortfall in access to finance for women-owned businesses. We are working to uplift communities and move our society towards a state of gender equality by investing in women leaders and selecting investments that positively impact the lives of women and girls. Our impact investment products and strategies are designed to support female-led companies and funds, as well as microfinance organizations that emphasize education, training and other services for girls, mothers, and women of all ages.
