About the Equality Impact Investing project
The long term aim of the Equality Impact Investing (EII) Project is to increase the equality impact of the social investment movement. Our current focus is on increasing both understanding, and levels, of equality impact investing in the UK.
The term ‘Equality Impact Investing’ refers to the intentional use of investment to advance equality outcomes on the basis of the principles of non-discrimination, equality and human rights.
