Commitment to Action

Measuring the Impact of Community Investing

Commitment by

Aeris

In 2015, Aeris, along with its partners, committed to increase the visibility and transparency of CDFIs among investors by establishing a set of common impact metrics. Standardized impact data, which can be aggregated across investor portfolios and the industry, will make CDFIs more attractive and accessible to emerging, mission-driven investors. Through this commitment, Aeris will scan the current state of impact reporting, and gather CDFI and investor input. Ultimately, Aeris will construct working groups of CDFIs according to their impact focus to identify and agree upon 3-5 standardized impact metrics for each impact area. Aeris will also build out its database to allow for the aggregation and analysis of impact data, and will offer impact data reports to CDFIs, investors, and other stakeholders.
