Quick description

The Impact Management Project (IMP) began in 2016 as a time-bound forum for building global consensus on how to measure, assess and report impacts on people and the natural environment. From 2016-2018, the IMP brought practitioners of all kinds together to share their experiences managing impact and to inform future standard-setting. From 2018-2021, the IMP facilitated standard-setting organisations – the IMP Structured Network – to clarify the landscape of standards and guidance used by practitioners for their impact management practice.

Five years after its launch, the IMP’s facilitation role has concluded as planned, after supporting the development of four initiatives that are collectively well-positioned to mainstream impact management, so that all organisations have the resources they need to improve their sustainability impacts. These are the Impact Management Platform, Impact Frontiers, IFRS, and Global Impact Investing Network.

The logic facilitated by the IMP in its early work – including the different dimensions of impact and strategies for investor contribution – is reflected in resources found on the Impact Management Platform and Impact Frontiers websites.
