Tools and Resources for Assessing Social Impact


Impact Reporting and Investment Standards (IRIS)

IRIS is a catalog of metrics with standard definitions that provide a consistent method for describing an organizationís social, environmental, and financial performance. Incorporating commonly-accepted metrics and expert input, IRIS spans an array of performance objectives and includes sector-specific metrics for areas including financial services, agriculture, and energy, among others. Like financial accounting standards, IRIS provides a credible reference for performance reporting, and organizations need only use relevant metrics from the IRIS library.
