Why use ALINUS?
Social investors in responsible inclusive finance have long tracked social indicators. Many investors use their own tools to collect a range of data points that are largely similar, but different enough to weigh as a reporting burden on FSPs and investors alike. Reducing this burden while improving comparability of social data is what has driven the development of ALINUS.
