Impact Reporting and Investing Standards (IRIS)

Impact Reporting and Investing Standards (IRIS)

Also known by its acronym “IRIS”, this is a catalog of generally-accepted metrics developed by the Global Impact Investing Network (“GIIN”) used by impact investors and social enterprises to measure and report on their social, environmental and financial performance.

They were made so that different businesses and ventures could be compared “apples to apples.” For example, if two companies report “jobs created” or “greenhouse gas emissions avoided” and both use the same IRIS definitions, it will be easier to compare how well they did compared to each other.

With banks retreating from commodities and inventory financing due to market volatility and higher interest rates, hedge funds and other non-bank financial institutions have stepped in to fill the funding gap.
This is my 15th year of growing my MOustache (aka “MO) with MOvember. I grow my MO to honor my father-in-law, who passed away from prostate cancer + to raise awareness and funds + to literally and figuratively change the face of men’s health. Movember is a fun approach to serious issues (testicular cancer for younger men + prostate cancer for older men + mental health for all of us), so I hope when you see our MOs that you will check yourself + remember to schedule your annual physicals + reach out if you need a friend.   #movember #menshealth #SouthBayMoBros
