ABOUT THE LISTING
The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) and the Impact Management Project (IMP) have created guides for measuring, monitoring and managing the impact companies and organisations and investments in them make. Their guides and frameworks which are adopted by ethical investment funds, institutional investors and philanthropic entities, provide a very mature and comprehensive lens through which to consider how companies contribute positively to the world.
The published list of ASX companies (attempts) to apply the GIIN & IMP taxonomies and categories to help you quickly find those that are doing good.
Entries can also be filtered by market capitalisation, industry sector, key business activity keywords to help you focus on your individual areas of interest.
