Seeking Expertise with Social Impact Bonds?
Given SustainAbility’s history and experience advising organizations on strategic and measurable social impacts, we are watching the Social Impact Bond (SIB) space closely.
For those unfamiliar with the concept, SIBs are new finance tools that leverage private capital for public benefit. More multi-stakeholder partnership than traditional bond, SIBs can scale proven, measurable social interventions, shifting risks to private investors and benefits to communities at large.
The SIB space is growing quickly as companies, nonprofits, and governments explore partnerships at the local, state and national level; it is ripe for innovation and the entry of new partners. We believe that there is a role for thoughtful companies to play here.
If your company is interested in social impact bonds, SustainAbility can offer guidance by helping you to:
- Socialize the concept internally,
- Create a blueprint for SIB involvement,
- Evaluate the risks to your business,
- Identify potential partners, and
- Guide you through the process of creating an SIB.
