Get a clear and reliable picture of the market. EVPA is THE data hub for impact investing and engaged grant-making in Europe.


The search for the right data starts with big questions. Is the impact investing market growing? Is it really driving transformational change?

Yes, the impact investing market is growing; assets under management grew by 26% between 2020 and 2021. But market growth is not accelerating at a rate necessary to reach the SDGs by 2030. What can we do to go faster? 

2022’s landmark report – Accelerating Impact – offers answers and a comprehensive, data-driven picture of where we are and where we need to go. In 2023, we’ll unpack the data from Accelerating Impact in further data sets and articles to ensure every audience in the impact ecosystem gets the right ways to accelerate their change.

Where our data comes from

EVPA 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.  

EVPA’s 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.
