Bretton Woods II

Bretton Woods II (BWII) was formed in response to the recognition that achieving the Sustainable Development Goals would require mobilizing capital far beyond what is available through traditional development assistance and philanthropy. BWII addresses this challenge by reframing the value proposition around impact investing to help channel part of the $25 trillion controlled by long-term asset holders toward social impact, sustainability, and good governance


GDI’s role

GDI partnered with BWII to help refine and build out its formal structures and strategy, including the development of an independent rating group that will rate deals, companies, and projects with an ESG rating (much like S&P, Moody’s, or Fitch does for financial ratings). In partnership with Dalberg and the Fletcher School at Tufts, GDI also published the “BWII Leaders List: The 25 Most Responsible Asset Allocators” to celebrate investors leading the way.
