A global network for impact investing

Creating impact together

The Coalition for Impact is a network of networks for impact investing that strives towards an inclusive financial system on a global scale.

The Coalition for Impact

Towards an Inclusive Financial System

Some description text for this item

The Coalition for Impact (C4i) is a unique global network of networks which believes in the value of co-creation, cooperation and coordination in order to jointly create more impact. It is driven by the ideas, commitments and engagement of the networks and its members.

C4i believes in the vision of a new financial system in which impact investing and regenerative economies are the new normal. We strive toward an inclusive financial system in which all business and investment serves humanity and the planet as a whole.

C4i’s mission is to drive this transformation by inspiring, encouraging and enabling the mobilization of trillions of USD for impact in order to reach tipping point, when impact investments are the new normal.

How we do it

The Action

Some description text for this item

The Coalition for Impact is a network of doers. We have established it to co-create activities and projects that could not be implemented by a single network but that call for joint action to trigger exponential scaling and transformative impact.

C4i also supports cooperative projects of two or more member networks as well as activities initiated by individual members of those networks. This means that we pass the ball to you. We call on individual network members committed to collaborating towards a world which values positive impact as their core criteria of success and who recognize the potential of impact investing as a means to build a more inclusive financial system.

At C4i we value efficiency and focus. We take the role of facilitator of the member-led projects in order to avoid duplications as well as to enable synergies and greater outreach. These are all steps we take to scale impact –  ideally, exponentially.
