The Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSG) is an independent collaboration of practitioners aiming to catalyse impact investment and entrepreneurship around the world.

Bridges co-founder Michele Giddens (who previously chaired the UK National Advisory Board on Impact Investing, the GSG’s UK offshoot) recently led a Working Group tasked with exploring the role of government in shaping the impact investment ecosystem.

The Working Group’s final report identifies a number of areas in which policy-making can be catalytic, and provides practical recommendations for next steps – with a view to facilitating better knowledge exchange between countries.

The Working Group hopes this research will be particularly useful for policy-makers or government officials looking to build a thriving impact investment ecosystem in their home country.
