PRINCIPLE ONE: Definition

Positive Impact Finance is that which serves to finance Positive Impact Business. It is that which serves to deliver a positive contribution to one or more of the three pillars of sustainable development (economic, environmental and social), once any potential negative impacts to any of the pillars have been duly identified and mitigated. By virtue of this holistic appraisal of sustainability issues, Positive Impact Finance constitutes a direct response to the challenge of financing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

PRINCIPLE TWO: Frameworks

To promote the delivery of Positive Impact Finance, entities (financial or non financial) need adequate processes, methodologies, and tools, to identify and monitor the positive impact of the activities, projects, programmes, and/or entities to be financed or invested in.

PRINCIPLE THREE: Transparency

Entities (financial or non financial) providing Positive Impact Finance should provide transparency and disclosure on:

  • The activities, projects, programs, and/or entities financed considered Positive Impact, the intended positive impacts thereof (as per Principle 1);
  • The processes they have in place to determine eligibility, and to monitor and to verify impacts (as per Principle 2);
  • The impacts achieved by the activities, projects, programs, and/or entities financed (as per Principle 4).

PRINCIPLE FOUR: Assessment

The assessment of Positive Impact Finance delivered by entities (financial or non financial), should be based on the actual impacts achieved.
