The GSG Impact Honors – delivered in partnership with Pioneers Post – are annual awards for game-changers committed to investment that optimizes risk, return and impact to benefit people and the planet.

The awards were created by the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSG), which harnesses the energy of governments, agencies, and entrepreneurs across the world to “drive forward the growth of the impact investment market to a tipping point by 2020”



The honor will be conferred upon either a profit with purpose company (i.e., a social enterprise) or a non-profit social service provider actively using impact investments, with over 2 years operation and USD 1 million in revenues/receipts, which demonstrates a scalable solution which truly innovates in technology, cost or impact, efficiency or effectiveness and sets new impact standards for research and development.


The honor will be conferred on a government, policy think-tank or a professional services company; for example, research, consulting, impact measurement, talent management, auditing, etc., or a policy think-tank with more than two years in operation, which pushes sectorial thinking or catalyzes our field development efforts. Individuals with extraordinary contributions may also be considered. It must demonstrate acceptance by sector players through a few marquee clients from amongst capital providers, entrepreneurs and intermediaries.


Winners will be flown to Santiago in Chile to receive the honors from Sir Ronald Cohen, founding Chair of the GSG. GSG will reimburse return travel and accommodation expenses up to an agreed amount for both category winners.
