TIIP was founded in 2015 by Steve Lydenberg—co-founder of the first index to utilize social and environmental standards—and William Burckart—a leading impact investing consultant—who were determined to help investors align their strategies and practices with the increasingly complex world of the 21st century. Not only did they want to show investors that everything—from the environment to healthcare to the financial markets—is interconnected, they also aimed to demonstrate that investors can play a major role in preventing environmental disasters and easing social unrest. They hoped that investors would realize that doing so is not only good for global sustainability and well-being, but it is good for their bottom lines.
TIIP has since worked tirelessly to encourage adoption of system-level investing through which investors consider the bigger-picture social, environmental, and financial system context of their security selection and portfolio construction decisions. We believe that with the proper guidance, support, and tools, investors can help to fortify the health of these systems, supporting long-term performance and driving industry transformation in the process.
