RII’s refugee research provides the gold standard refugee metrics that financial institutions need to assess the opportunities and risks of scaling sustainable refugee solutions in the global markets.

RII is filling the refugee data and investment gap

Right now, companies are taking action to support refugees. But this action isn’t tracked by data providers, and investors are unsure of where to direct their capital to support sustainable refugee solutions. Of the tens of trillions of dollars in sustainable finance, none are earmarked for refugees.


Our Product

Receive a dataset on a pre-agreed frequency that easily integrates into your existing ESG data feeds. You will receive flat files with RII scores and underlying data.

Our Methodology

First, the RII team collects raw data from public sources (and one exclusive data source: Upwardly Global.) Then, we structure the raw data into functioning metrics before scoring companies using the Refugee Lens Scorecard.


Our methodology

RII’s proprietary Refugee Lens Scorecard is the first assessment tool for private sector refugee support. Our team scores companies along six pillars covering 39 metrics that measure the quality, quantity, and duration of a company’s refugee contributions. 

The scorecard is weighted towards corporate activity that enables economic integration and refugee self-reliance. RII is a member of the Refugee Self-Reliance Initiative (RSRI), and our Scorecard builds on the RSRI’s work to tailor public and private sector interventions towards refugee self-reliance.


Our methodology

RII’s flagship Refugee Leaders Index, developed in partnership with Solactive, is composed of the top-rated global companies on refugee economic integration. 

The index is powered by the RCA Dataset and Refugee Lens Scorecard and allows investors to identify the leading global companies supporting refugees. Contact us to learn more about how you can invest in this innovative set of companies.
