Portfolio Report 2019

This year, we have further aligned our reporting with the norms defined by the Impact Management Project (IMP). This is part of our effort to continuously improve the clarity and quality of our portfolio report. While the norms are integrated into our screening process for new investments, we have in the portfolio report leveraged the IMP framework more clearly to improve our external stakeholder communication.
