Impact verification business BlueMark has added four investors to its “Practice Leaderboard” – its list of impact investors who score in the top quartile for alignment with the Operating Principles for Impact Management. The four firms to be added to the list are:
- AgDevCo, an Africa-focused agri investor;
- Blue Earth Capital, the impact firm started by the founders of Partners Group;
- Calvert Impact Capital, a non-profit fund investor;
- and Nuveen’s fixed income impact business.
These investors join the five organisations who made the grade in last year’s inaugural list.
The leaderboard is due to be published today in BlueMark’s annual Making the Mark report, which summarises the findings of the firm’s various impact verification assignments. BlueMark has carried out impact verification process for 42 of the circa 170 signatories to the Operating Principles for Impact Management, according to a press release.
