The global social impact investment market is growing rapidly. These are investments that provide financial support to organisations addressing social or environmental needs – with the explicit expectation of a measurable result, social as well as financial. Karen Wilson, Team Leader Social Impact Investments at the OECD, presents the key findings from a recently published OECD report on the role of social impact investment in delivering on the sustainable development goals (SDGs). A panel from SEB, Leksell Social Venture and Norrsken Foundation discusses what the Swedish impact investment market looks like and how we can minimize the risk of “impact washing”.
