The Impact Investing Policy Collaborative (IIPC) has launched a new report, Impact Investing Policy in 2014: A Snapshot of Global Activity, outlining specific policies being leveraged to expand the impact investing market in different countries across the globe.

This first-of-its-kind report provides brief summaries of policy innovation across themes, sectors and countries, broadening the conversation from what public policy could enable, to what public policy is actively addressing in so many different countries and markets.

The report includes a compilation of articles focused on issue-areas relevant to impact investing including: conceptual pieces on the development and mapping of the policy system for impact investing; examples of specific public policy that have supported market development in different countries; and insights from private firms into how impact investing intersects with other key market areas, such as international development and infrastructure investment

Impact Investing Australia’s Chair and IIPC Senior Fellow Rosemary Addis co-authors a reflection on the the ‘G8 Taskforce and the Global Market – Why the Social Impact Investment Taskforce work matters and what comes next‘.
