2DII is presenting a new science-based framework to assess the impact potential of financial products:
- The Impact Potential Assessment Framework (IPAF) assesses financial products based only on their actions to generate real-life impact,
- Using this methodology, the framework differs from other frameworks that choose to include in their ratings other sustainability/impact dimensions,
- It is exclusively based on public information provided by the product manufacturers,
- It is applicable to various types of financial products (funds in public markets, funds in private markets, deposits, crowdfunding investments) and sustainability objectives (e.g., climate, biodiversity, social issues, etc.).
Discover the full version of the Framework and its accompanying documents.
