IRIS is a universal language for social, environmental, and financial performance reporting. It was developed as a tool for the impact investing industry to improve transparency, increase the credibility of social and environmental performance data, and facilitate investment comparability and performance benchmarking.

This first report presents early findings from 2,394 organizations - including 1,931 microfinance institutions and 463 mission-driven organizations - that work with leading impact investment intermediaries. In addition to presenting early aggregated performance data, this report's objective is to drive widespread adoption of IRIS and to encourage impact investors, funds, and mission-driven organizations to strengthen future market intelligence by voluntarily contributing data for analysis through IRIS data collection partners.
