Great Lakes Impact Investment Platform

The Conference of Great Lakes St. Lawrence Governors & Premiers, in collaboration with a multidisciplinary project team, is developing the Great Lakes Impact Investment Platform (GLIIP) as a new structure to encourage environmentally sustainable economic growth in the Great Lakes State and Provinces.

GLIIP features various investment products intended to deliver demonstrable impact and revitalize the region’s waters, while also aimed to generate competitive, market-based financial returns.

GLIIP is geographically specific and Impact focused. It is among the first of its kind, and is a model that could be applied to other natural resources in this region or globally.
