Turkey is the latest National Advisory Board to join The Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSG), through the creation of the Impact Investing Advisory Board (EYDK). The body brings together 38 leading public, private, and non-profit sector institutions around the vision of making impact investing a mainstream, sustainable, and inclusive choice for investors across the country.
The GSG is an independent organisation that is catalysing impact investment and entrepreneurship to benefit people and the planet. Covering 35 countries through its 30 national and regional advisory boards, GSG brings together leaders from finance, business, philanthropy and governments to drive a shift towards impact economies.
EYDK President Safak Muderrisgil commented: “Already in EYDK’s first year, the readiness and motivation of the key stakeholders have accelerated Turkey’s involvement in the global impact economy in this historic turning point and EYDK is accordingly working towards nurturing the local ecosystem.”
