In the profiles of Galvanize’s Impact team and each of our investment strategies, you will notice a few consistent themes. First, our belief that financial return and climate impact are deeply intertwined, and therefore the incorporation of impact assessment and measurement into pre- investment diligence and post-investment portfolio management is a source of competitive advantage for our firm. Second, while we believe good impact measurement can enable successful investing and/or corporate strategy, assessing impact is a complicated and nuanced process. This necessitates a tailored approach for each Galvanize asset class.
We hope this document will serve as a benchmark in our approach to embedding impact in what we do at Galvanize.
