The magnitude of the refugee crisis poses a clear systemic risk – not just to social cohesion, but also to global financial markets.
Refugees are often overlooked and underutilized
Systemic problems require systemic solutions. Beyond helping people survive, the private sector must play a role to address the scope and scale of the refugee crisis. Businesses can help refugees integrate economically and socially so that they may regain their stability, dignity, and self-reliance. Companies have taken action through hiring, entrepreneur support, and education & skills development, among other economic integration activities.
To get more companies on board, the market needs transparency into which companies are contributing the most toward refugee economic integration. RII was created to meet this information gap, providing investors and other organizations with data and insights on corporate activities through three solutions.
*Based on Institute for Economics and Peace 2020 Ecological Threat Register

The Refugee Lens Scorecard is a proprietary methodology for assessing company refugee action. Scores are weighted towards actions and policies that enable economic integration and refugee self-reliance. Built with support from the RII Advisory Board that includes refugee and ESG organization leaders.
Our flagship Refugee Leaders Index, built with our partner Solactive, is the first index that tracks the top global companies on refugee economic integration.
