What is the Impact Management Project?

The Impact Management Project (IMP) provides a forum for building global consensus on measuring, assessing and reporting impacts on people and the natural environment. 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.

The IMP facilitates standard-setting organisations that, through their specific and complementary expertise, are coordinating efforts to provide comprehensive standards and guidance related to impact measurement, assessment and reporting.

The [logos] names [on the right-hand side] below represent 15 organisations that have formed a structured network to work together with our support.

  • UN Global Compact

The IMP also convenes a community of over 2,000 practitioners to share best practices, delve into technical issues and identify areas where further consensus is required in impact measurement and management.

As a time-bound global public interest project, the IMP is funded by a diverse group of donors from Europe, the US and Asia. The team also brings perspectives from a wide range of countries, including the UK, Norway, USA, Canada, South Africa, Romania and Australia.

What is Impact Management?

Most companies and investments have negative and positive impacts on people and the planet.

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.

To mainstream impact management, companies and investors need coherent guidelines on how to measure, report, compare and improve.

Supporting the Sustainable Development Goals


IMP SDG

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) challenge all enterprises and investors to measure and manage their impact on people and the planet – positive and negative, intended and unintended. These Global Goals provide a common ground for previously siloed parts of the market. They apply to big and small enterprises, public and private capital markets, and development finance. They are as relevant to enterprises and investors focused on ESG risk management as to those focused on positive intended theories of change.

The SDGs call for a united effort to achieve a shared set of targets and indicators, within which businesses and investors can differentiate and communicate their roles based on their social / environmental goals and performance.

The consensus-building technical work of the IMP supports enterprises and investors to understand and improve performance against the SDGs.

Impact Frontiers is a learning and innovation collaboration developed with and for asset managers, asset owners and industry associations. It is designed to help investors better understand and implement existing impact frameworks and standards, and integrate them alongside their own financial considerations.

The IMP+ACT Alliance, hosts a free self-assessment and reporting tool for investment practitioners wanting to integrate sustainability factors into their investment decisions, investment practice and performance analysis. The IMP+ACT Classification System (ICS) was developed using the impact classes, which are used to group investments based on their impact characteristics.
