DEEWR releases ‘IMPACT-Australia: Investment for social and economic benefit’ report
News: Tuesday, 2 April 2013 - 12:00pm
DEEWR, in collaboration with JBWere, has developed a report that establishes a foundation for understanding impact investing in the Australian context: what it is, why it matters, what is happening here and what could or should happen.
The report showcases examples in Australia and internationally of people harnessing capital markets to: support community prosperity; encourage vibrant culture; and contribute new solutions for issues of exclusion and sustainability.
The focus on strong social and economic outcomes goes directly to the prosperity and wellbeing of people and communities, and links to DEEWR’s mission: working towards a productive and inclusive Australia.
The report is part of DEEWR’s work to catalyse, encourage and support the development of impact investing as a field in Australia.
