The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) recently published the third couplet of impact performance studies as part of the impact performance series, which have previously focused on clean energy, housing, financial inclusion, and agriculture investments. These new reports focus on the performance of climate change mitigation investments and investments in quality jobs, and include our investment in Tugende, a social enterprise enabling informal sector entrepreneurs in Uganda to access to productive assets, as an example of investment promoting quality jobs.
The studies enable investors to better understand whether and to what extent their investments are addressing the climate crisis and enhancing quality jobs. In the case of climate change, The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) calls for a global reduction in greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) of 7.6% by 2030 in order to avoid a global temperature rise of more than 1.5 degrees Celsius and prevent irreversible damage. Additionally, COVID-19 has amplified worker instability, insecurity, and posed critical well-being challenges, emphasizing the need to continue building toward progress in quality jobs.
