Defining, measuring and reporting on impact investment

Thursday 06 May 2021 | 17:00 - 18:00 | Webinar

This webinar has been organised by CFA UK's Impact Investing special interest group

The Impact Management Project (IMP) provides a forum for building global consensus on how to measure, manage and report impacts on sustainability. From 2016-2018, the IMP convened a practitioner community of over 2,000 enterprises and investors to agree on best practices (or “norms”) that provide a common logic to help enterprises and investors understand their impacts on people and the planet, so that they can reduce the negative and increase the positive.

During this session with CFA UK’s Impact Investment special interest group, the IMP’s James Hicks and Jo Fackler will talk through these impact management norms, and explain how they can be used by investors to classify the types of impact occurring within their portfolios.

Where recordings are made, these are a member benefit that are accessed through the member-only platform, CFA UK Discover.


Registration: 16:55

Event: 17:00 - 18:00

CPD points: 1.00

He has also worked on the data and technology programme, the IMP+ACT Alliance, during its incubation at the IMP, and is currently a project manager for the IMP’s Non-financial Digitisation Working Group (NDWG), a project that is exploring the components required to digitise the sustainability reporting ecosystem.
