Where our data comes from

Impact Europe collects market data through annual surveys on impact investing and engaged grant-making in Europe. We launched our first survey in 2010, and since then have built a comprehensive picture of the market trends and needs.  

Our surveys provide independent statistics, crucial in a sector that is increasingly attracting new actors with different impact strategies. Its insights apply to experienced social impact investors, newcomers, policymakers, traditional investors and foundations to gain a broad understanding of trends, gaps, practices and strategies adopted by European investors for impact.
