BlueMark was launched in January 2020 with a mission to “strengthen trust in impact investing” by providing independent impact verification services to investors and companies. One year later and BlueMark has now completed 30+ verifications across a range of asset classes and investor types against alignment with the Operating Principles for Impact Management.
Using data and insights from an initial 30 verifications, BlueMark’s second annual ‘Making the Mark’ report offers an in-depth look at best practices in impact management. And in a first for the impact investing market, the report also introduces a new industry benchmark that is designed to allow market participants to clearly differentiate between impact investing leaders and learners, thereby bringing more transparency and accountability to the impact investment market.
Hear first-hand from several of BlueMark’s clients that have gone through the verification process to learn how a third-party perspective helped them improve their approach to impact management. We will also be joined by experts in impact investing for a conversation on the importance of benchmarking and how a shared understanding of opportunities and challenges can advance the field.

Christina Leijonhufvud | CEO, BlueMark
Tomi Amosun | Managing Partner, Summit Africa
Elizabeth Boggs-Davidsen | Vice President, Office of Development Policy, U.S. International Development Finance Corporation
