Two years after becoming one of the founding signatories of the Operating Principles for Impact Management, Incofin releases the 2021 update of its annual disclosure statement.
A few months ago, an external auditor (Ernst & Young) endorsed Incofin’s alignment to the 9 principles. Incofin now renews its annual disclosure statement. This re-affirms the adjustment of Incofin’s impact management system to the nine principles and reflects the continuous enhancements we make to our processes. The nine principles aim to set a global standard for impact management. Incofin’s investment strategy is for example aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
With 132 signatories to date, we are proud to contribute to promoting the highest impact standards within the industry.
One year after Incofin signed the global standard that IFC set for impact management, Ernst & Young confirms in their report Incofin’s alignment to the nine principles.
Incofin committed in May 2020 as signatory to the International Finance Corporation’s (IFC) Operating Principles for Impact Management. The nine principles aim to set a global standard for impact management. Incofin’s investment strategy is for example aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This commitment is now endorsed by the auditor’s report of Ernst & Young.
The nine principles we are endorsing:
Define strategic impact objective(s), consistent with the investment strategy
Manage strategic impact on a portfolio basis
Establish the manager’s contribution to the achievement of impact
Assess the expected impact of each investment, based on a systematic approach
Assess, address, monitor and manage potential negative impacts of each investment
Monitor the progress of each investment in achieving impact against expectations and respond appropriately
Conduct exits considering the effect on sustained impact
Review, document, and improve decisions and processes based on the achievement of impact and lessons learned
Publicly disclose alignment with the Principles and provide regular independent verification of the alignment
