Mission Markets is excited to announce that the Global Impact Investing Network’s (GIIN) Impact Reporting and Investment Standards (IRIS) have been integrated into our Impact Investment Platform.  IRIS consists of social and environmental performance measures that facilitate comparison of impact data across a wide range of social and environmental sectors. The IRIS taxonomy is an important tool that will help companies and organizations seeking capital quantify and communicate social and environmental value to investors. We look forward to integrating more useful tools like IRIS as the impact investing industry grows!
