Positive Impact Manifesto

Published October 2015

The Positive Impact Manifesto invites banks and other financial sector players to think more holistically about their role in the economy, society and the broader environment, and proposes a ‘Roadmap’ to establishing a new, impact-based and market-driven paradigm: positive impact finance.

Positive Impact finance is defined in the Manifesto as “that which verifiably produces a positive impact on the economy, society or the environment once any potential negative impacts have been duly identified and mitigated”.

The Manifesto offers an innovative response by the banks to social and environmental and developmental imperatives in the year of the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals.
