Agents of Impact

Kelly McCarthy, Global Impact Investing Network. Back when evaluating impact was still an afterthought, Kelly McCarthy, a director at the GIIN, was recruiting agents of impact measurement inside the world’s asset owners and managers. As capital markets come to value social and environmental impact, they have a measurement and management infrastructure built by McCarthy and other underappreciated pioneers. McCarthy led efforts to develop IRIS+, “perhaps the most important public good in impact investing,” according to Tideline’s Ben Thornley. After nearly a decade of stockpiling metrics and best practices and seeking consensus and input from hundreds of experts and investors, McCarthy has the chops to say, “These are the five or 10 things you should be looking at if you want to drive results.” Follow ImpactAlpha on Instagram.
