Regarding the PIIF, one of the managing directors of ACTIAM Impact Investing has been a member of the Steering Committee. In addition, we were a member of the GIIN Investors' Council, and one of the ACTIAM Impact Investment managing directors was also European Liaison of the GIIN.

As the initiator of the Client Protection Principles (CPP), the Smart Campaign remains an important player in the microfinance sector. With the Social Performance Task Force (SPTF), ACTIAM has cooperated in an initiative to re-evaluate earlier negotiated standards on reasonable returns. As per 2018 we are no longer a member due to the high payment and limited set of relevant activities. We have the option to participate in activities of interest at a certain fee however.

ACTIAM is a signatory of the SDGI (http://www.sdgi-nl.org/) in order to support a Dutch agenda for Sustainable Development Goals Investing. We are also co-authors of the report.

ACTIAM is a member of NpM (also linking to SPTF and eMFP)

ACTIAM is co-author of the 'UN PRI Impact Investing Marketing Map' and we started discussion with the SMART Campaign on client protection in the fintech era.
