"The IMP is thrilled to team up with Rally Assets and partners throughout the Canadian market to support investors in setting -- and achieving -- integrated sustainability and financial goals. We are working hard to establish similar collaborations with leading partners in other geographies, following the pioneering example set here in Canada. Our vision is that over time, any investor in any asset class or geography will be able to access content and a community of like-minded peers to help them advance their impact management practice, so that capital markets can better serve the needs of people and planet."
- Mike McCreless, Executive Director, Impact Frontiers and Head of Investor Collaboration, Impact Management Project
"Most investors can’t tell you if their investments have had a positive impact on people and the planet, let alone if positive impact is correlated to financial return. It’s time to empower investors with this information to enable greater change. Rally is thrilled to convene this important conversation with the IMP, our partners and Canadian investors in Impact Frontiers. This practical, applicable approach will support investors to learn, build and invest better."
- Kelly Gauthier, Managing Director and Partner, Rally Assets
"The Responsible Investment Association has a vision to align capital with sustainable and inclusive development as codified in the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Impact investing and collaboration are going to play an important role in achieving these objectives, so we are pleased to support the Impact Frontiers program as it will foster collaboration and strengthen impact measurement practices in Canada."
- Dustyn Lanz, Chief Executive Officer, Responsible Investment Association
"By making impact management strategies accessible to capital allocators across the country, Impact Frontiers will help move the Canadian investing landscape forward in demonstrating impact at a time where the imperative has never been stronger. MaRS is excited to be a part of helping this innovative program contribute to a vision for economic growth in Canada that is sustainable and impact-driven."
- Jason Sukhram, Senior Manager, MaRS
"Ensuring that we properly design the practice of impact measurement and management for Canada is instrumental to the success of our market. There's no better way to do this than by bringing in voices from across the country. Impact Frontiers' approach to ecosystem building, collaboration, and learning represents an important step towards advancing our ability to measure and manage impact. We're extremely excited to be part of Impact Frontiers and look forward to working with everyone involved."
