Series A investors
In April 2023, BlueMark announced that it had closed its Series A funding round with $10 million in capital commitments from a diverse group of seven investors. The lead investor is S&P Global, with other new investors including Temasek Trust Capital and three family offices with significant experience in impact investing — Blue Haven Initiative, Gunung Capital, and Tsao Family Office.
Ford Foundation and Radicle Impact also participated in the Series A round, having previously funded BlueMark’s seed round with $2.25 million in equity financing, with Ford Foundation as lead investor and Radicle Impact as co-investor.
We are grateful for the support of all our investors and their vote of confidence in BlueMark’s efforts to accelerate the adoption of its industry-leading impact verification services, benchmarks, and analytics.
S&P Global is proud to be investing in BlueMark to support much-needed innovation in transparency for impact metrics. More than ever, companies and investors are seeking access to high quality data and advanced analytics relating to sustainability. This investment represents a step forward in enhancing market participants’ access to impact-focused insights.

We would also like to thank our founding investors, The Rockefeller Foundation, Radicle Impact, and The Ford Foundation. These organizations made catalytic investments early in BlueMark’s history in recognition of the powerful role that impact verification can play in the future of impact investing and finance as a whole.
BlueMark’s work to help impact investors reach for a higher standard in tracking their performance has rightfully earned them a reputation as a leading authority on best practices in impact management and reporting. This next phase for BlueMark signals the growing awareness around the importance of impact investing as a whole, and Ford Foundation is excited to take our partnership a step further.
