Impact Measurement & Management:
Impact measurement and management (IMM) is integral to making effective impact investments. It includes identifying and considering the positive and negative effects one’s investment approaches have on people and the planet and then figuring out ways to mitigate the negative and maximize the positive in alignment with one’s goals. Impact measurement and management are iterative by nature.
Impact management is the ongoing practice of measuring, assessing and improving impacts on sustainability issues. It is relevant for enterprises and investors who want to manage environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks, as well as those who also want to contribute positively to global goals.
