The Global Impact Forum (GIF) is an industry-wide member forum hosted by Pensions for Purpose to facilitate meaningful industry discussions on how to embed social and environmental impacts at a strategic level, including in governance discussions, to encourage the flow of capital towards investments that have a positive impact.

The forum operates on a quarterly cycle of:

  • All-stakeholder events, consisting of a keynote presentation, followed by small group breakout discussions.
  • Peer-to-peer meetings for pension funds and other asset owners to share experiences, discuss challenges and learn from each other.
  • Morning coffee/afternoon tea discussions relevant to this agenda.
  • Training opportunities.
  • Newsletters, signposting relevant updates, content and events.

Forthcoming GIF events are shown opposite, along with the most recent relevant content. (You can also see a calendar of all Pensions for Purpose events here.)
