The IRI Foundation

As a non-profit organization, fundraising enables the IRI Foundation to obtain the necessary income for its activities and operational needs. It is crucial to ensure that funds come from ethical sources and do not compromise the foundation’s independence.

Ethical fundraising has a vast impact on the foundation’s reputation and activities, including a number of programs and projects delivered worldwide to help businesses become more sustainable.

The IRI Foundation has an applied practice in place to ensure all fundraising activities are ethical and transparent for all affected stakeholders. The funds received respect the donor agreements, through elaborate reporting processes, and are allocated towards work which encompasses the foundation’s mission to empower decision makers to take action towards a more sustainable economy and world.

The IRI Foundation is committed to the highest standards of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Anti-Financial Crime (AFC) including Anti-Bribery and Corruption (ABC), Counter Terrorism Financing (CTF), Anti-Fraud and other punishable criminal acts.

The IRI Foundation provides financial support to the IRI Reporting Standard, which is registered in the Netherlands. The Netherlands is a member country of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and the European Union (EU) and has enacted laws and rules designed to implement the anti-money laundering policies of both FATF and the EU. The goal of these laws is to detect and prevent money laundering and potential terrorist financing. The IRI Foundation and IRI Reporting Standard will adhere to all applicable laws and regulations in all countries where it conducts business, or has business relationships to.

For all these topics, the IRI Foundation has implemented clear rules and outlined those in its policies which are complied with by all IRI staff globally.
