GIIRS Ratings provide a framework of impact measurement and management that helps investors and companies assess their performance against a rigorous, comprehensive standard, the B Impact Assessment. GIIRS was launched six years ago to meet a core need to scale the impact-focused capital markets — a credible, independent evaluation of the impact of companies and investment funds. Since its launch, GIIRS has rated more than 100 investment funds and 1000 portfolio companies. GIIRS Impact Ratings and the B Impact Assessment were designed and are administered by the global nonprofit B Lab.
