The Emerging Markets Investors Alliance enables institutional emerging market investors to support good governance, promote sustainable development, and improve investment performance in the governments and companies in which they invest.

Beginning in 2010, the groundwork was laid for the Alliance through the organization of several informal educational events for investors on emerging market governance issues. The Alliance was formally incorporated in 2015 and holds educational events for investors on topics relating to transparency and anti-corruption, the environment, public finances, human rights, animal welfare, and corporate governance. The Alliance also produces educational materials on these issues and empowers investors to become effective advocates for good governance. 
 
Only a few international institutions have the power to influence public and private sector governance and sustainability in emerging markets. These include international financial institutions such as the World Bank, select non-governmental organizations such as Transparency International or the Global Reporting Initiative, and governments. The Powering Past Coal Alliance is one of these institutions. The Alliance empowers investors to stand alongside these institutions as leading advocates for good governance and sustainability.
