Our Green Investment Principles set the benchmark for assessing and managing the green impact of investment transactions and related activity.
Our Green Investment Policy is designed to ensure that the activities of the Green Investment Group and its subsidiaries are in line with our Green Investment Principles.
Every GIG investment is subject to a robust green impact assessment process before it can be approved. When we began back in 2012, there wasn’t a methodology with sufficient academic and scientific rigour that could be applied pragmatically, day-in and day-out, through a commercial investment process. So we built our own.
Our approach is designed for investors, by investors. Every investment is subject to this robust, detailed and continuous green impact monitoring, spanning all aspects of its green performance. An overview of our methodology and measurement to report on green impact can be found in our Guide to the Green Investment Handbook.
We have developed the Green Impact Report as a globally-applicable template for investors to disclose the green impact of their investments.
Below are a selection of Green Impact Reports on GIG investments.
Information on our annual green impact is available in our Progress Report.
Currently, there is no one standardised approach to green impact assessment, monitoring or reporting. We are committed to ensuring our approach is at the forefront of market practice by adopting to the continuous improvement of standards and actively engaging with a wide range of stakeholders on our approach.

We are building on our pioneering origins in green finance by supporting the development of international standards for sustainable finance – in partnership with BSI, we are convening experts for the ISO Sustainable Finance Framework Standard.
We have adopted the Equator Principles, a risk management framework, for determining, assessing and managing environmental and social risk in projects.
Equator Principles were adopted prior to the Macquarie Group acquisition.
