lightrock’s proprietary
impact scorecard


Impact potential and impact risk of each investment.

We have developed our proprietary impact assessment based on industry best practices to determine the risk-adjusted attractiveness (Net Impact Score) of new investments. The Lightrock Net Impact Score is based on a company’s potential to create positive impact (Impact Potential) and risks that could lower the effects (Impact Risks).

industry contribution and partnerships

We actively shape the global impact management debate and contribute to leading industry bodies and initiatives. Lightrock is also an inaugural signatory of the Operating Principles for Impact Management, which have been introduced by a working group led by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) in spring 2019. Lightrock is committed to align with the Principles and has published its Disclosure Statement on its alignment here. In spring 2021, Lightrock has engaged BlueMark to undertake an independent verification of its alignment and has published its Verifier Statement here.
