For Impact Projects to be developed , implemented and scaled so that it becomes an asset class, we must ensure that they also satisfy the expectation of the financial market. Since their prime objective is to bring about strong and sustainable growth, it was necessary to develop a methodology for selecting projects that would satisfy investors. Projects are scrutinized with a methodical analysis to ensure their long-term feasibility, economic and financial robustness. Because these projects belong to an asset class which is not yet stabilized, they must present a strong profitability profile in the short term with strong upside. INFRABOOST has built its own methodology, based on 9 key questions allowing it to present projects to investors in an Executive Summary and a detailed Information Memorandum.
