EYDK Held Türkiye’s First Impact Investing Summit

The EYDK Impact Investing Summit 2024, organised by the Impact Investing Advisory Board (EYDK) for the first time this year, was successfully completed on May 23-24 at Boğaziçi University under the theme “Accelerating Impact: Forge the Future, Transform Together”.

The Impact Investing Advisory Board (EYDK) has been leading efforts to advance the impact investing ecosystem in Türkiye and promote sustainable development centred around impact since 2021. Alongside members from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, EYDK continues its efforts to position Türkiye as a regional leader in impact investing, with its authorised national partner status representing Türkiye within the international impact investment network GSG Impact.

In Türkiye’s developmental journey in impact investing, the implementation of the first social impact bond and the establishment of impact funds in 2023 are considered significant milestones. The EYDK Impact Investing Summit 2024 aimed to highlight Türkiye’s progress in transitioning to an impact economy, while also aiming to increase awareness, promote, and strengthen collaborations in the field of impact investing.
