Impact Investing Case Study Series

Doing Well by Doing Good - In collaboration with Worldview Global Impact (WGI), a New York-based NGO that promotes sustainability initiatives, the Picker Center is producing a new series of case studies that will examine this important global strategy from a variety of perspectives. The first case, Doing Well by Doing Good: An Introduction to Impact Investing, is linked below: %20Columbia%20Case%20Study.pdf


Measuring Impact -The second case in the Impact Investing Case Study Series will examine the issue of how to measure impact, and will explore current metrics and standards used in the industry, including those created by the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN), the UN Principles for Responsible Investing, MSCI, SASB, IIX and others. This case will be ready in the spring of 2021. The case, Measuring Impact, is linked below:

In cooperation with the Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) and its Picker Center for Executive Education, WGCA has launched the exciting new Impact Investment Case Study Project (IICSP), which will design and produce a series of video and text case studies as part of the SIPA case study library in public policy.


IICSP has just begun work on the first case study and is seeking support for the next case studies, which will explore the rapidly expanding global investment activity in balancing positive social impact and value with traditional financial return goals.
